bent a rim and want to replace it

I have a 2011 laredo, I bent one of my 20x9 srt8 gloss black replica rims and want to replace it. I measured myself and its 3 inches from bolt to bolt but how do it find out the backspacing/offset? I'm going to order a replacement rim but I want to have the correct information so I dont make a mistake. Can someone explain how to measure the rim on my own?

I want to shop around before calling the original place I purchased the rims 98 miles away

Anyone recommend a online-store too.

Re: bent a rim and want to replace it

Here you go. Backspacing is 7.47, Offset is 34.7, and bold pattern is 5x5 or 5x127mm. I ordered my reps from quadratec...link below for Quadratec and Factory Reproductions.

Yes I know lol??? Thats why I was asking, I would have assumed since he originally had the wheels on his new jeep, since they are aftermarket reps, he would have gotten them from FR or ebay, or an affiliate. So just curious as to why ask this question now lol??
