Default wheel spacers add to offset?

If so how much?
Say a mm will add ____ offset.

just out of curiosity, are you asking this because you want to add spacers to a wrx?
in general, the wrx already requires a wheel with high offset (depending on size of the wheel)... i've never really heard of people adding spacers on wrxs, but then again, i don't get out much

I may be incorrect, but I believe adding a 1mm spacer would DECREASE the offset by 1mm.

Wheel spacers lower your offset. Wheel offset is expressed in millimeters. So if you have a 50 offset wheel and use a 5mm spacer, you'll be at 45 offset. People use the spacers to generally gain clearance to use wider wheels/tires and not rub on suspension parts.
