    Don't worry about offset, just backspacing. With 4.5" BS, -24mm is a 10" wide rim. Why are you wanting to run such a wide rim? What size tires are you planning on?

    Had tons on the Taco's.... new truck is pretty stock
    Here's some comparo's for you regardless of wheel diameter:

    10" wide, 4.5" BS= -24mm offset
    --------, 5" BS= -12mm offset

    9" wide, 4.5" BS= -12mm offset
    --------, 5" BS= 0mm offset
    --------, 4" BS= -24mm offset

    8" wide, 4.5" BS= 0mm offset
    --------, 5" BS= +12mm offset
    --------, 4" BS= -12mm offset
