The distance between the mounting surface on the hub and the center of the wheel.
When you add a spacer the offset/et is reduced by the spacer size because you're moving the center of the wheel closer to the mounting surface on the hub.

I actually struggled for a bit with understanding offset. Now I has it undr control.
