Okay, I'm looking at upgrading the wheels on my SRV in the spring and I'm trying to find the specs on my existing wheels. I know they are 17" and 6 bolt x 115, but what I can't find is the offset. I'm guessing low to mid-40's, but that is just a guess.

I've searched this site and googled, but cannot locate. Can somebody help me out?

There is a great idea! A V-series SRX! (sorry, could not resist)

Opps...wishful thinking I guess! :D

Well, according to this ebay link (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/FACTORY-CADILLAC-SRX-CHROME-WHEELS-RIMS-17-06-EXCHANGE_W0QQitemZ270070473317QQcmdZViewItem), the offset appears to be 51 mm. If you look closely at the bottom right picture (which I've included below), you'll see where the size is stamped - on the inside of the back of the spoke. It should read 17x7.5Jx51.0, with the latter being the offset (unless I'm reading this wrong...). If you don't want to take one of yours off to verify, you might try looking under at the back - provided they're not too dirty, you might be able to read the code without resorting to removing the wheel.

Good luck

Thanks Northern! Man, even higher than I guessed. Now I have to figure out how low I can go and they still fit.

Thanks again.
