Not sure about offset or backspacing, but before my Rockstar days I wanted to do the 18" 8-hole wheel from the 05-07 model year.
Turns out I needed 2" spacers for that (so do you unfortunately), and it wasn't very cost effective anymore..

the 05 and up trucks run 6" back spacing and the 99-04 truck run 4.5" back spacing. Add spacers or go to a wheel that has 4.5" of back spacing and you will be fine.

You need 2" steel spacers if you want to run those wheels without trimming studs. Let me know if you get aftermarket wheels and want to sell the factory 5-spokes! I have been looking for some.
