RF moved out puts less bite on that corner.

RR moved in puts more bite on that corner.

LR moved out creates understeer which tries to drive the rear of the car to the left.

All of these offset changes work to tighten the car. They have an effect on turn entry, middle and exit. On a good LM, you should be able to keep all offsets the same and adjust the suspension. Less on the wheel bill.

I agree with Rud in reguards to the wheel deal. Basically, whenever you are switching offsets(except for the front) all your doing is actually manipulating weight, you can do the same thing with air pressure. The front, when you change offsets, also manipulates the roll center also. This means you can affect how much the car rolls in the turns with changing them also.
