How do I order a 4 inch offset rim?

I have been looking at rims on tire rack for my 97 ZJ Laredo. I wanna grab a set of 16x8 ultras. How do I order with a 4 inch offset?

wheel backspacing is listed in the detailed description of each wheel..
Simply click on the wheels and look for one with 4"

Look for back space instead of offset.

Thanks guys I just noticed in the description where it has backspacing. The ultra rogue 16x8 i'm looking at has a 4.8 inch back spacing. This is the first vehicle I have done any type of lifting or anything to so i'm pretty ignorant at this point.

3.75-4" is all you need.

I'll second what has already been posted. Offset and backspacing are related, but in this case you are looking for backspacing. This is not a guarantee, but in general people usually focus on offset when discussing car wheels, whereas particularly for off roader wheels the focus is generally backspacing.

I'm sure someone will point out if I am wrong, but as I recall on an 8 inch wide rim. 0 offset is a 4 inch backset.
