what is the difference in a 0 offset and a -12 offset? I just oredered tires and wheels online and just noticed they are a -12 offset. Am I in for some problems?

long storys short the wheels backspacing is tucked in the fender more....the wheels wont stickout from the fendersas much or at all with -12....alot of people throwing big tires on their lifted trucks will run something near a 0 to -3 offset to get that "mean look" i guess of the wheels poking out more....what size tires and wheels?

I just hope they fit!!! I have 265/75/16 on there now and it looks like I have plenty of room. I know the 285's would fit but this offset thing throws me off!

the -12 offset on the rim will poke out more than the stock 0 offset wich would help with turning radius and the new tire you got isnt too much bigger soo should be fine
