Need Help with Wheel Purchase (Specs)!
I'm ordering 18" Fuel Hostage rims online and I need some input to make sure I'm understanding and getting the right specs.

The wheel specs are:

18 Inch
5x127 Bolt (correct)
-12 Offset (??)
-72.6 Centerbore (??)

Here is the ebay link: 18 inch 18x9 Fuel Off Road Hostage Black Wheel Rim 5x5 5x127 Lifted Wrangler | eBay

Is the offset listed referring to backspace or true rim offset? If it is negative (-12), and with the 4.5 backspace of the rim, is this correct to give me the wide stance with the tires going a bit wider than the fender?

I'm putting Duratracs 295/65/18 on them.

Thanks for any input!

The neg offset means the mounting face is about 1/2 inch behind center of the wheel then another 4.5 to the back of the wheel for a total of 5 inches to the back from center.

This pic is a different wheel with the same offset and backspace as an example. If you check my build thread you can see them with stock fenders. I have Fuel Hostage on it now!!

I just ordered rims, 18x9 -12 offset, I think -12 looks the best, even if you're just leveled.
