Default 2010 ram wheel question

Just bought a 2010 ram 1500 slt quad cab and was thinking of putting some new rims on it. I'm new to all of this and am not sure what size I need. I have the stock rims with the 265/70/17 tires on it. I want to keep my tires and get new rims. I know i want 17 by 8.5 in rims My main question is the backspacing and offset. How much is too much or not enough

Another great place to find a ton of information is the wheel and tire section of the forum HERE. Start reading through some of the threads there, especially the sticky'ed ones and you'll find a ton of information about what different set ups look like.
