i have put a new setup in my car this year and am having some problems getting car to handle. it seems to have little push going in and loose coming out of corner. i dont have weight jacks and run stock mount shocks. i have about 53% rear and 53% cross weight. my tires only give about inch or less difference in stagger. also what does putting 3 vs 2 inch offset on rf due to handling of car and 3 vs 2 on lr do to handling. somebody told me moving rf tire more under car will help it bite better and lr under car will help it hook up better. all ideas much appreciated.

The farther the LR sticks out the more it tightens up the car. The RR getting moved out loosens the car on entrance i believe. Im not sure about the RF. Your push could be solved with springs or tire pressure.

basicly as far as offsets go the closer to the car the tire is the more weight it will carry so putting more offset on will take weight off
