Because the specifications on the OEM wheels and tires are not neatly organized in one location, here is a summary that I complied that can be used for reference. Credit for the diagrams to www.autoanything.com

Wheel Offset:
The SSR has positive offset on both front and rear wheels
This means that the mounting face of the hub is offset towards the outside of the truck relative to the centerline of the wheel (most current factory wheels have some positive offset)
Wheel Backspacing:
The distance from the back face of the mounting hub to the rear of the wheel (with a straightedge across the rear flange)

Front Wheels
Size= 8J19xET32
Stamped 19x8.0Jx32
Wheel Diameter= 19 inches
Wheel width measured inside the flanges= 8.0 inches
J= Wheel Mounting Flange Style
32 or ET 32= 32mm positive offset
ET=Einpresstiefe or offset
Backspacing= 5-3/4 inches
Hub (Center Bore) Pitch Circle Diameter= 78.3 mm
Bolt Pattern=6 (Lugs) x 127mm (Bolt Circle Diameter)
Bolt Threads= M12x1.5

Rear Wheels
Size= 10Jx20ET14
Stamped 20x10Jx14
Wheel Diameter= 20 inches
Wheel width measured inside the flanges= 10 inches
J= Wheel Mounting Flange Style
14 or ET14= 14mm positive offset
ET=Einpresstiefe or offset
Backspacing= 6-1/8 inches
Hub (Center Bore) Pitch Circle Diameter= 78.3mm
Bolt Pattern=6 (Lugs) x 127mm (Bolt Circle Diameter)
Bolt Threads= M12x1.5

It’s been posted before in the forums that the backspacing is as below:

Front 19 x 8, 6 on 5" boltpattern, 5 3/4 backsspace

Rear 20 x 10, 6 on 5" boltpattern, 6 1/8 backspace

Just curious where you got your numbers?

Kerry:

I found them in a table but based on your note I measured two wheels with metal straightedges, confirmed your numbers, and updated the post.

Thanks.

Another useful specification you may want to add to your post is outside diameter (in) for tires? Based on Goodyear specifications being they were OEM are:

Front: 28.1”
Rear: 29.3”

Another good reason for max performance, handling and tracking, stick with the stock wheels and tires the SSR was built around. Just my 2 cents and we all know what that is worth.

I was working on expanding the tire specs (no pun intended) and have updated the info to include the ODs and more. There is a conflict between the Goodyear site and what is listed on a pair of front tires I have- the speed rating is listed as "H" on the front tires and "V" on the spec page. I have listed what is on my tires, which is also consistent with other information about the original load rating.

Hi,

Thank you for the posted information.

I was trying to put old school style white wall tire with baby moon center cap on my 2006 SSR.

I went to wheelvintiques.com in city of industry, CA but advised to get the numbers of wheel spec.

I could not find the followings,

inside knob fit
outside knob fit
brake sizes


Need help!

Steve

You need an 18 inch rim (some 17 inch will work) to clear the brakes.
No idea what knob fit is unless they are talking about those little bumps steel rims used to hold hubcaps on.
SSR rims don't have them and the front and rear hubcaps are different sizes.

After looking at some Wheel Vintiques information I believe Bruce is correct. The inside and outside "knob fits" are related to the "nubs" that are used to retain either a full hubcap or trim ring or a smaller center cap. Because OEM SSR wheels do not use trim rings or hubcaps these dimensions are not available. I'd recommend discussing with the manufacturer what trim ring or cap you want to install on the wheel style and size you select and ask their suggestions for these dimensions. Relative to brake size, there are online templates and guides available for measuring wheel clearance and brake sizes.

They are jerking you around because they feel you don't know what you're doing, and are likely to screw up and blame them.

They need the diameter, width, backspacing and bolt pattern. They should also know the size of your lugs and the center bore you need.

Bruce,

Thank you for the words.

They probably have the information in hand and keep fooling me around.

I just do not know where I should be expecting some useful help.

Anti theft wheel nuts??

Hi can anyone say if there are any after market lug nuts out there, maybe Autozone etc as my SSR is on the street at the moment due to loss of garage so would be nice to know if there was something available. Cheers Gerry

You might try a PM to @Turnheadz; since she did what I think you are attempting to do.
I mentioned her here so she might check since you do not have enough posts to use PMs.

I think the Jegs lock nuts won't work because they're too tall/long. The height/length of the standard nut is 7/8".
The jegs lug is:
Overall Length - 1.46.

You wouldn't be able to put the wheel cap back on.

In the FWIW column:
You might consider these lock nuts. They have all the right specs but deny that they will work on a SSR. They're .86" long/tall/height.


Locking Lug Nuts

McGard has a set of locking lug nuts that fit the stock wheel; here's a description and one source:
