Default 17" Wheel Questions 2013

Looking to replace the stock 20" wheels with aftermarket 17" rims. I would like to better understand offset and backspacing, but need a starting point. If the OEM wheels are 17x7 with a +1 offset, does that mean the backspace is 4.5"?

Mickey Thompson classic 17X9 5X5.5 4 1/2backspace -12 mm offset.

Or the Pro Comp series 99 wheels.17x8, 5 on 5.5 Bolt Pattern
Backspace = 4.5 in
is the offset +.5"?

I am going to keep the stock tire size 265 70 17 but would like the tires to move out from stock about 1/2" max.

Please help get me on track. Thanks in advance!
