I guess the flat edge measurement of my stock rim to the face of the mount to the hub is what I need before purchasing aftermarket rims...
Yeah to measure backspacing lay a flat edge across the back of the wheel and measure the distance from that flat edge to the flat mounting point of the wheel where the hub will go through. That will tell you the backspacing in inches and here is a chart to convert it to offset.
