WHY is it so hard to find the right set of wheels!!!!!

I hate it, when I find a set that I like, they dont make our offset, or lug pattern or what every. So what info do I need to when shopping for wheels? I know:
5x5 or 5x127 lug
and that I can run wheels meant for a Wrangler with spaces, but what is the minimum/maximum offset that I can use, especialy since I dont want the wheels to stick out really far.

Re: WHY is it so hard to find the right set of wheels!!!!!

Lay a straight edge across your rim, on the backside. Measure from the flat surface where the lugs bolt on, to the straight edge. That's your backspacing/offset. The less backspace, the further the wheels stick out. With the backspace, rim width/diameter & lug pattern numbers, you should be able to find most anything you want. HTH
