Offset

The offset of a wheel is the distance from the mounting surface of the wheel to the true centerline of the rim. A positive offset means the mounting surface of the wheel is positioned in front of the true centerline of the rim / tire assembly. This in effect brings the tire in to the fender well more. Conversely, a negative offset means the mounting surface of the wheel is behind the true centerline of the rim / tire assembly. This will cause the tire to stick out away from the vehicle.

To compare the effects of changing the offset and width of your wheels use the
Wheel Offset Calculator

You first posted a +12 offset that would stick out 1/2" less than a 0 offset. But now your saying -12 that would stick out 1/2" more than a 0 offset. The offsets are in millimeters. The photo in my last post is hard to tell but the tire tread stick out about 1".

That looks more like a +24. If it was a -24 and they are 10" wide they would stick out 1.5" more than my 9" +1 offset wheels. Your's don't look like that. But they do look to be .5" less or more than mine. Which at +24 it would be 1" less than mine but add the .5" and your .5" less than mine.
