It all depends on the width of the wheel. You could run a 0 offset if wheel was narrow enough. Also, the size(width and profile) of the tire will make a difference.

Stupid question: positive offset would only give you the issue of rubbing the outside of the fender/quarter panel, and not the inner portion, right? Or am I way off?

the smaller the offset, the farther out it's going to sit. If you have a larger number, you're more likely to rub the inside fenderwell.

Or you could rub the inside of the rim on the knuckle.

lower (positive) offset: wheels stick out more

to make things clear, the closer a POSITIVE NUMBER get to ZERO the futher out the wheel is pushed. most stock wheels are around +45 to 47.
