question [HELP]

Specific definition of offset is the difference of the hub mounting
surface from the centerline of the rim. Positive offset rims are most
common on newer vehicles, and pretty much the norm for FWD. IOW - on a
7" wide rim, a vehicle with 2" positive would have 5.5" backspacing.
Backspacing can also cause problems. Too much and your tire will rub
the inside of the wheelwell, suspension components, brake lines, etc.
Too little, and you rub the inside of the fender, or stick out of the
fenderwell all together.

To put it simply, Jil's approach is best. Find rims that are designed
to fit your vehicle. It's way to risky to be messing around with this
kind of thing (unless you've got connections to somebody like Chip Foose).
