offset is the centreline of the wheel as you look at it from the side not the front. a negative offset means the centreline is towards the rear of the wheel and a positive offset means the centreline is towards the front of the wheel. ok??

OK, thanks Herbie.

So How is that denoted on the wheel or in an advert. I would assume it would be with a + or - Sign?

It's sometimes difficult to visualise what someone is trying to tell you. This page I found on the net might help:http://www.rsracing.com/tech-wheel.html
