I have purchased a set of 15x6" steel rims for my winter tires. The differece between the 15x6" alloys I have on now is that the offset of the steel wheel is +1.75" vs. that of the alloy: +2.25". Is this half inch difference going to cause problems? The rims clear the calipers OK so I'm not really concerned about that. Will this 1/2" shift outwards cause future trouble with the bearings? I am going to a narrower winter tire, 195/60 vs the 205/55 on the alloys, but I don't think this makes much difference. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
