Offset means extra width or gap between the wheel AND the hexagonal hub. You can use wheels which have offset ( gap ) pre built by manufacturer OR you can use wider hexagonal hub OR adding spacer. They have the same effect = wider track.

I have to use 2 degree offset wheels so I can run 30mm wheels on the back of my pro-4. The 0 degree offsets rub my lower shock mounts.
