I've seen wheels listed for C3s, some with 24mm offset for smaller cc engine models and some with 27mm for larger cc. Why would 3mm make such a difference that it would be specified?

Hi Roy

I don't know why its 3mm, but if you are going to specify a measurement, you should get it right and put the correct number, which they have done by the sounds of it.

You are comparing 2 measurements and trying to read something into the difference between them, when they are just 2 measurements.
