The fuss was about me not being sure the middle of the hub is middle of rim. Now i know its ok.

I understand that but exactly why is that important if you use original parts? The 2mm length difference does have a super-minimum effect on the wheel placement.

Because i do not use the original spokes since i dont have them anymore. Everything looked so damn crooked i was wondering if it needed offset. Now i know it does not.

Well, yeah. But i'd call the replacement kit spokes also "the originals". Anyhow, glad you've figured it out  :)

I always measure offset before I take a wheel apart. I lay a straight edge across one side of the hub and measure to the edge of the rim. Rims aren't always centered.

Tort, sometimes a rim NEEDS to be spoked offcenter to keep the wheels alligned. When a rim is spoked to a hub both sides equally, its not neccecarily ok.
Bike will handle like shit when the rims are not in one line..

Yeah, offset is important and varies from bike to bike.  That being said, I don't think I own a bike that requires rims to be offset to the hub.  My BMW R75, XS650, XT500 and CA95 all seem to have centered rims.
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Yes, i understand that but don't these wheels run spokes that are much different (in length or bend) from each other? For some reason i think that if a spoke set includes spokes that are only 2mm different in length, this can't be an offcenter wheel.

Also, if you have an offcenter wheel and correct spokes, doesn't this mean that installing them correctly and tensioning them more or less equally gives you the more or less correct offset?
