I need some good answers here. Right rear wheel offset. Putting it out I know will loosen the car. But where in the corner will it loosen you? And pulling the wheel in will tighten you. But where in the corner will it tighten you? I just want to get these things straight. Thanks

This is something i think you will have fun with. Some say its easy but its not i have talked to several and still do everyday on this subject. What is weird on this subject is that if you move a wheel out you lesson the spring rate for that side well that means you have a softer spring over there. Well if you wanted to loosen the car you would put a stiffer spring in the right rear and that would loosen the car so why is it that when you move the wheel out and soften the spring you loosen it. Well it doesnt i think wheel offset is a driver feel. If you move the right rear out and soften spring rate you will tighten car coming out of the corner because you have more left spring rate and more left rear. This subject doesnt make to much sense to me but i know what the changes do when i have tried them. Here again i think wheel offsets are for the big boys with lots of power Goodluck on your answers and hope you get it lol
