Wheel offsets

I suspect this has been dealt with before but can someone explain what offsets are for 15" wheels. I have a set of 4 x 15" wheels on the car but  the spare is only 14". Another reason not to buy from Ebay sight unseen. Rang wreckers and was asked whats the offset. I dont have a clue, what am I looking for?  
 
Regards

Michael


 
It should be written on the wheel somewhere.

Your 15" wheels would probably not be Volkswagen wheels.

Can you send a photo?

The offest of your rims in engraved on them as an et rating followed by a 2 digit number. for example et30 is the stock offset printed on 14"syncro rims. good luck
