    Default Different offset an issue?

    Hi guys,

    I am in the process of trying to get a full size spare for my car (touareg 2011)

    The OEM wheels are 59 ET offset

    The wheel i found is 62 ET offset

    Width and PCD are the same on both (8.5 and 130x5)

    Im not technically inclined, is this an issue or will the minor difference in offset not be a problem?

    Thanks

    3mm will not make any difference. Once you get to a difference of 20mm and bigger, specially if it is on the front (steering) wheels, you should not fit such rims.
