For example, if you buy an 11" wide wheel with a 0 offset, you are going to have a 6" backspace. This is because an 11" wide wheel is overall 12" wide and a 0 offset is right in the middle; 6" to the back, 6" to the front.

Say your wheel has a +25 offset (25mm), that means your backspace is going to move 1" (25.4mm=1") towards the front of the wheel, thus increasing your backspace to 7".

A -25 offset would decrease the backspace an inch to 5".

You just have to measure to see what fits.
