As far as Ive seen, you can get -1 offset (rims are closer to the chassis center) up to +3 offset (rims sit further from the chassis)
Sorry to inform you, but if you reduce your offsets your wheelnuts will protrude and fail the scrutiny. This may be why Shepherds and other cars have the wheel "bolts" not nuts as you then dont have to get the dremel out and start grinding the threads
The best solution for Team magics Ive found to date are wheels +.5mm-+.8mm, otherwise you will have to buy different hex hubs. I did use offsets to get a feel for how track widths impact the car handling.
You will find that you may also have to cut down our balls on your arms to allow to narrow the track width
This also depends on the CV joints and the pin positions as you may be pushing your dog bone into the outdrives and seizing suspension
Since using capricorn all my problems have been solved. I used matrix and strugled to get under 200mm on the rear.
Last point, I measure various wheels from various mfg and none maintained a similar offset ration front and rear, so you might mix and match.
