Wheel offest

Hi all...need some expert comment here...

If change wheel to less offset so now wheels about 28mm push out.
It wont rub fender or wheel arch...but i would like to knw what r the
changers to the drivability to the car?

How will it affect
cornering....
U turn...
braking....
road holding....
high/slow speed driving....
steering feel/feedback....
shock and suspension

Appreciate all comments.
Thank you

Rims wide means tyre also wide. Tyre wide means more contact to the ground, more grip.

More grip wear faster. Wen u fit 18 wider lower level profile tyres vs 17, suspension wears faster.

If u do wheel alignment toe out, same thing

Isit....how so?

Smaller offset, wheel sits further out from wheel arch. Tats probably wat he meant

Yep the idea is any performance gain will always result in some compromises elsewhere. No such thing as car faster and last and works like an Altis

consume more fuel

Still...it doesn't make tire wider=more grip=more fuel consumption

From my limited knowledge, offset only changes the track width. Anything else remains the same.

A wider track width provides more grip, at least tats wat the spacer companies market their products say

It is true to a certain extent.
It provides more grip only during bends.
If you were to nitpick, then I can only say it helps little on straight due to slight difference in CG,weight balance etc.

Jazz GD1 original 185/55/15....6JJ ET53

rims r push out by about 28mm due to +1JJ and +ET16
overall diameter abit smaller

better grip (achieved through various means like spacers) is not meant for straightline speed but corners. so if it's true that wider track width increases grip, then it's not true to a certain extent. It's 100% true.
