I think you might be confused. Those aren't high offset wheels.

low offset makes them stick out more, high offset pulls them in under the fender. Check out the sticky'd offset info thread in this section.

I'm somewhat of a newb on wheels myself, but from my understanding people like to stay within about 10, 15 tops on their offset. For example, the offset of my stock wheels are 53, so I wouldn't want to stray too far from that.

10-15? Try 5-8.

Default wheel offset

hi, you want to stay close to the original offset, it affects your handling, if using a wider wheel than stock with orig offset , 1/2 the width increase goes in and half goes out, but your centerline is still as in the original design. basically offset is the distance from wheel centerline to the mounting flange, higher numbers inset the wheel, lower numbers move it out, but either will affect the handling of your car and may cause tire rub.
