hey glen, it's wes.....general rule is the farther outboard the wheel is the less weight is on that wheel. ex. a 2" offset wheel will have less weight on it that a 4" offset one.

a lot of racers know a quite a bit (or know how to make their car work), but don't necessarily understand what they know (the basic priniples involved) making info they pass along often confusing and sometimes incorrect for your particular situation.
