looking to buy some new wheels need advice

hey guys im looking at buying some new wheels I was looking at the moto metal wheels, one thing im confused at is that it says the offset is -12mm. does this mean it will make the tire stick out of the truck more or less? ive never really understood how this works, I have an idea of what it means just not 100%. here are the wheels im looking at, anyone ran these? if so how did you like them?

offset is a modern term for backspacing, if the rim is 9" wide the center point is 4.5" a negative number means the hub face is inset(deep dish look) a positive number would mean the hub face would be further out.
