The wheels on the Sol we know are 5x110 with a 55mm offset, what is offset and how/where is it measured?

I'm curious because there are several 5x110 wheels available locally here in the UK that are that size, but the offset is typically 35 or 45.

I'm looking for a very light set of 17"s for the ocassional track day at Snetterton.

I'm not a racer, don't like the traffic, but do like to feel the limits once in a while. Plus the track is less than 45 minutes away.

Thanks SkyCaptain, best explanation I've heard on this topic.

So if I went with a wheel that was same width, but less offset, the tires would stick out farther?
