This is a great little tool I found that can assist with measuring up for new rims

Hopefully now my understanding is correct, I've made two statements sharing what I understand.
"positive offset is shifting the mounting face of the rim outwards from the centerline of the rim" and "negative offset is shifting the mounting face of the rim inwards from the centerline of the rim"

Positive offset is flat face or modern style
Negative offset is deep dish or old drag race style.

This link might help to clarify how offset, +/-, is determined.

Have a look at the signature pic. Utility is definitely the one on the stool.
