2012 Dodge Ram and ATX Storm FAQ:

  1. Is the 30mm offset ATX Series Storm the only compatible wheel for my truck in this particular wheel model? There are actually two compatible versions of the ATX Storm, the 30mm offset and the 18mm offset version.

  2. What's the difference between a 30mm and 18mm offset? Offset is the distance between the mounting pad and the middle centerline of the rim. The higher the offset the more "in," while the lower the offset the more "out" the wheel moves relative to the hub. To gain a better understand of offset, read our tech article titled "Offset."

  3. What effect does this offset difference have on my Ram wheel fitment? Your Original Equipment 17" wheel is either 7" or 8" wide (depending on the exact O.E. wheel you have) with a 25.4 mm offset. You can check your O.E. width by looking for either a 17x7JJ or 17x8JJ stamped on the back of the wheel. Let's consider the O.E. 17x7" wheel. With a 30mm offset, the edge of the wheel will move 4.6 mm in. What about the wheel width difference? Since we're going from a 7" wide wheel to an 8.5" wide wheel, the edge of the wheel will move out by 3/4" (that's 1/2 of the 1.5" wheel width difference).

  4. What would be the net effect for this new set-up? The wheel would move in 4.6 mm because of offset and out 19.05 mm (3/4") with the wheel moving out 14.45 mm (.57 inches) compared to the O.E. 17x7" wheel.

  5. What about the 18mm offset? The wheel would move 7mm out plus another 3/4" out, therefore the edge of the wheel moves out 26.05 mm (1.03").
