Technical Details of 17inch TH-Line wheels
Schmidt TH-Line available now – with high offsets!
Volkswagen enthusiasts and their endless demand for outstanding wheels created the idea to use zero inch wide outer lips with a negative profile on our Schmidt TH-Line centers.
Since the late 80s TH-Line wheels where build up to 16inch only. We never considered a 17inch Modern-Line version until Nankang brought out their 165/35 R17 tire.
We know our customers do understand the terms offset and wheel width. For that reason we spare you with the usual marketing stuff and go for the technical stuff. Please feel free to contact us for further details. We are happy to share.

Technical details for different TH-Line wheels
By front loading the lips to the Modern-Line center we get a very narrow wheel. Here we are using a 0x17 outer in combination with a 6,5×17 barrel. This way you get a 6,5×17 at et47.
The Schmidt 0 x 17 outer lip with its negative profile allows for wheels up to offset 59.
The 0,5 x 17 outer lip allows for a 7×17 et41 – which is a straight on fitment to many cars.
For the fans of extrem offset we recommend this version.
