I think I'll dig out my scuba gear and go ask chadwick.
Assuming you are trying to figure the BACKSPACE, not offset, since you already know the offset is +25mm....
Offset isn't really pertinent to Jeeps. But here's some info I found on the webz...
Offset measures the distance from the mounting surface of the wheel to the centerline of the wheel, and it is often indicated in millimeters. If the mounting surface is located closer to the street side of a wheel, then the offset is positive. If it is located closer to the brake side of wheel, then the offset is negative. If it is in line with the center of the wheel, then the offset is zero.
So, if my brain is functioning properly this morning (which isn't likely) Then the bs on would be closer to 6.5"......
