Wheel question

I put my tires up on Craigslist the other day and I got a response and the guy asked me what the offset was. Does anyone know the offset that my 98 zj limited has?

Factory ZJ rims have around 5"-5.25" of back spacing.

It's not hard to measure backspacing. Should be plenty of how-tos around online if you google for it. Basically just lay a straight edge over the inside lip of the rim and measure to the mounting flange and subtract the distance from the lip to the face where the bead seals (usually 3/8" - 1/2"). Offset is the distance between the centerline of the two beads and the mounting flange. Make sure you specify which way is positive and which negative. People aren't always consistent.
