Wheel Offsets and How to Read Them??

The B Class Forum has been trying to resolve replacement wheels.

One member was planning to install older MB wheels with a 51mm offset.
The B class recommends a 46mm offset on their 16" wheels.

Can using spacers resolve this problem or only increase the 51mm offset?
We're not sure how to interpret the offset and to which direction it refers to?

Hey, Derek. Offset is not just in a vacuum, it's a factor of wheel width. If you know widths of the respective wheels, here is a useful calculator: Wheel Offset Calculator

Take care and enjoy the ride,
