I'm going to lace up some Bonty Mustang OSB rims and I've got a little conflicting info on how to lace them.
I thought the rear was laced with the nipples closest to the disc side and the front the opposite
But I've also been told, the front should also have nipples toward the disc side like the rear.
Which is correct?

Thanks for any info.

This is correct.

I had to lace a wheel 3 times once because I kept getting it backwards. Didn't see it was backwards until I had all the spokes laced.

Thanks,
I thought I was right but thought it was best to ask before I started.

Semi-related question - are all of the holes offset, or are they staggered (every other hole offset)? Looking at photos, it kinda looks like the holes are not in a straight line.

Both. The spoke bed is offset and the holes are staggered.
