Okay, I have custom rims on my s-10, but they are very old and it's time for them to go. I know the bolt pattern is 5 on 4.75, but when I was looking at rims, there was no word of backspacing. Just offset. can someone explain to me what exactly is offset? I'm thinking it's one thing, and not to be confused, I'm not going to write it here. When I ordered rims years ago, I told the Dealer the rim size, bolt pattern, and backspacing I wanted, easy then. But offset is making me a little confused and maybe someone can help me out. I'm looking to run with an 18x7 or 18x8 rim. The truck lays frame, but no bodydrop.

Thanks a lot.
