It means that with the new wheel, even when you keep your stock tires, your wheel is sticking out 20 mm more than your stock wheel.Stock offset is +60. The best you can do with the ones you linked to is +40. That is the difference.
Thanks Slv5sPitt. I didn't know it would make that big of a difference...20 mm doesn't sound like a lot, but there isn't much extra room to begin with. You will have to roll the lip of the fender flat to keep the tires from rubbing on the fender. The size and type of tire will also influence how badly it will rub.
I encourage you to poke around the stickied threads in this sub forum. Most of the information you need is contained within.

Thanks... I guess I'll just go to Discount Tires and see if they have any deals...Might I suggest, if you really like these wheels, taking the advice of the website; to be exact
".....For expert fitment advice, please call us at 1-866-747-6247 ..."
you need wheels with a larger offset, maybe they might have them in a different fitment for your car.
which ones did you get?I know you roll the dice when you buy "cheap" wheels, but I got a set of ADR Design wheels off of eBay for $410 shippped. They have held up well so far and that says a lot considering the roads in Pittsburgh suck. My opinion is that just because wheels cost a lot doesn't mean you won't have to replace them. More expensive wheels might not bend easily, but they sure get curb rash just as easily. They way I figure it, I can get 3 sets of wheels for the price of some others. In case you were interested, the seller on eBay was Nateswheels.
