Track is measured at ground level from the centre of the tyre on one side to the centre of the corresponding tyre on the opposite side of the vehicle. Changing the offset changes the relationship between the mounting surface and the centreline of the wheel. A more positive offset means the mounting surface of the wheel is further from the centre of the vehicle.

:oops: my bad lol....was thinking of something else lol....and i think you have other issues like hitting the shock before a more positive offset reduces the track of the car :lol:

You are right there, Too much positive offset and the tyres hit the shocks.

At full extension a 17 x7 with a +40 offset will hit the shock badly. So maximum offset with 17 x 7 would be about +35 and +30 or +32 would be better but getting these offsets would be difficult without custom offset I am guessing.
