    im still a bit confused. im looking at some wheels right now and they say they have an offset of 15mm. does offset have anything to do with how far the wheel and tire will stick outside the wheel well---and if so would a negative offset stick out further or less? if someone could please help me that would be great, thanks.

    negative offset the wheels will stickout farther and positive offset the wheels will be further in. Hope that helps.

    Thank you for that information!!! I am thinking about buying new wheels sometime this summer and now I know how to figure out the back-spacing. The wheels I am thinking about are the ATX Artillery.Anyone have these on their truck, so I can see what they look like? The viewer on TireRack only helps a little.
