cadillac wheel offset

i am wanting to order a set or 20 or 22" wheels and tires for my 64 caddy, i am just having a hard time determining the wheel offset to order, can anyone tell me the wheel off set and backspacing for stock 64 wheels.
if anyone out there has ordered aftermarket wheels for there 61 to 64 caddy, what size and offset did you order?
thanks

No, that's the BACKSPACING. Offset is the distance that the wheel mounting surface is OFFSET from the centerline of the rim. You want zero offset.
