The Importance of Rim Offset

Figure 1.
There is a small gap between the inside of the tyre and the spring compared with Figure 2. This shows the difference between a deep rim offset and shallow rim offset.

Figure A and Figure B.
Figure A and Figure B demonstrate how the rim offset can affect where the tyre sits within a mudguard and how mudguard, brake and tyre combinations need to be perfect so customers don’t run out of space.

Figure B.
Figure B’s solutions could be a combination of:

1. Change to wider mudguards
2. Space the mudguards off the chassis
3. Change rim offsets
