American Racing AR890 wheel backspacing question

So, when I got my jeep WJ, it had aftermarket American Racing AR890 wheels. I know the size- according to the AR website, they're 18x8" wheels. Also, according to the site, the offset is +35 (or a slim chance they're +0)
My question is, what does that mean regarding the backspacing. I am somewhat familiar with backspacing, in inches. But the "+35" is throwing me.
I am trying to figure out whether to keep the wheels, or sell them (trying to find 35" tires for 18" wheels is a pain, and they're expensive. But I already have these wheels.
Hope you guys can help.
