The offset of a wheel is what locates the tire and wheel assembly in relation to the suspension. More specifically, it is the measured distance between the hub mounting surface and the center line of the rim.
If the offset of the wheel is not correct for the car, the handling can be adversely affected. Visually, the width of the wheel also determines how much of it protrudes relative to the car’s bodywork. Below is an explanation of the various types of offsets which are pictured in the above graphic. Most factory rims will have this type of offset.The larger the tires are, the shorter the suspension travel is. Although the difference doesn’t seem to be that large.
You can see from the image that the deepest wheel side is now faced outwards. This is mostly visible in the videos at the end of this post. For instance if you’re looking for some street or race circuit tires, these will have a different and lower profile which needs to fit the wheel grooves. Thus you need to find a more precise width match and larger inner diameter.

These tires use internal foam inserts to be able to sustain the models’ weight. Because of this they also allow the suspension travel to remain a bit closer to the original. Crawler version, by replacing these with knob wheels and got some promising results (apart the squeaky sounds), as you can see from his video (notice ha also changed the gear ratio used on the portal axle hubs). Thanks for these wonderfull reviews and explanations !
I have been looking for the ansmann tires, but in vain. Features suspension, drive and steering, lights, working steering wheel and custom stickers. Features 4x4x4 drive and steering, full suspension, 2 steering modes, and adjustable ground clearance. So the tire is the only thing used not the wheel. Lego parts and would be a choking hazard for children under 3. It just so happens that these tires are made for the purpose of play and not performance or realism. This is where the world of cross-breed assemblies between 3’rd party tire manufactures and regular rims starts to look interesting. It brings the opportunity to start driving outdoors with more control, or simply having a car model resemble its real-life counterpart. The second criteria was to find a good selection of sizes and tread styles. Let’s have a look at them individually from smallest to biggest. They are slightly too narrow for the 56mm rims. Initial concerns was that the side walls were very soft and thin, so they may require harder foam inserts with heavier vehicles. For crawlers, the soft rubber will grip very nicely. They exist in a 96mm and 108mm variant, seen here. Compared to the 100×38 mm tires above, they have much thicker side walls and the rubber feels just as soft as the rest of the higher quality tires. It has superior detail, size and a smooth stretchy material. The grip is so high that they can be difficult to turn using a servo motor.
