Could someone sort of sum up what wheel offset is and what it does?

wheel offset is the distance that is in between were the wheel mounts on the axle and the actual inside of the tire. so, if you look on the wheel some are wider than others but the part where the tire goes on are the same width.

this basicly means that you use the same size tires but you can make the car have a wider wheel base. this can give you more or less traction and also make the car a lot more stabil! try playing with differn't offsets (front and back) i think besides tires this is the most drastic way to dial your car in.
