Typo? or bad info? 11 mm is less than 1/2" That can't be right. Maybe 11 cm that's about 5 1/2" this sounds more like it. If you don't have and rubbing issue's, take off a tire and measure it. That way you get what you need.

The offset is messuered from the center of the wheel, the backspacing is mesured from the inner lip...

Offset can be positive or negative, so there's a +,- in that number, tha backspacing will be, the half of the wheel width, plus/minus those 11 mm

That sounds quite odd, 11mm offset it's ok, but the backspacing is usually mesurend in inches...
