School me on wheel offsets!!!

Hey guys I'm lookin to pick up some deep dish wheels soon and have no idea what offset and backspacing I need or want

I do want the deepest wheel I can go and really don't wanna go bigger then an 18 if I don't have to just because 20"s and 35"s just isn't enough tire to air down on in the sand so any help on the subject would be nice

Meant to kinda explain a little more with that last post. I do know a 0 offset is going to be close to stock. -12 (most wheels step up to that) is going to be roughly around inch and half out of the fender. -20 and higher (lower if you wanna be technical) is going to push the wheels out further. Most wheels come on a 0, -12ish and -20, with the option to order higher.

I believe mine are a -26(?) But here's a pic for reference, well the best I have anyways:

35/12.50/17. Weld racing wheels. They look good, but aren't really my style. May be looking to sake them before too long. I do like the stance they give my truck though.

I was thinking of bumping up to 22s with a -46 offset and bfg km2s in a 335/55R22. Its roughly 36.7 inches.. Im never anywhere around sand, or hardly any snow. Mostly back roads, farm pasture and deer lease. And never any issues with the km2s im running now.

Meant to do it the other day, but if you want I can get a pic from the back or front to give you an idea of how much they stick out.

Also would seriously suggest the clear liner stuff (linex? Or something similar) for your fenders. Especially if you're going to be anywhere semi rocky.. I have chips like crazy on mine.
