    As the title states, for the guys with the wheels with negative offset on their 3G’s, show them puppies off!

    Wider track provides more stability / handling.

    You can definitely go overboard (like anything)... but a bit of negative never hurt nobody...

    It's is a lot more complicated than this. There is the ratio of front and rear track width which affects under and over steer. Notice almost every car has a slightly narrower front track in the spec sheet? Also king pin angle and scrub radius. Severe negative offset will increase moment around about the knuckle and lead to twitching steering and more steering input to due to braking, 4wd acceleration, road surface, and split mu situations (one side of vehicle has more traction than other)

    Let also us not forget the increased load on our crappy front wheel bearings.
