Ten? Sorry fatuous comment. Et or offset is the distance between the mounting face of the wheel and the centre line of the wheel inside to outside. Negative offset is the mounting face nearer the inside of the wheel and positive is the mounting face nearer the outside of the wheel. This seems to be a major confusion for some people. A Jimny is negative by however much depending on the generation.

Look it up on here: www.wheel-size.com

This says that the Japanese market Jimny has ET22 but otherwise it's ET5 like what I said.

I'm deeply unconvinced about this. This afternoon I will measure a wheel and confirm. Just need a gen4 measuring too.

Very few standard wheels are negative ET from the factory. At least I’ve never really come across any. Plenty in the aftermarket though and especially for 4x4’s. So I can well believe these values are correct.
