How Does Changing Wheel Offset Affect A Vehicle? 


 If you were to fit an aftermarket wheel with more negative offset than OE on your vehicle, the new rim and tire will stick out further to the outside. Potentially, you could have clearance issues between the tire and the fender.


 Conversely, a new wheel with a more positive offset will sit in a more inboard position inside the wheel well. In that case, there is the potential for the wheel or tire to make contact with a brake or suspension component.
