well, I know that the bullitt wheels have about the same look but the differences beetween the two are what I love about the tt2. I ended up ordering the tt2 18x8 with a 5.25 backspacing. I am assuming that they are going to fit since they are the only size close enough to what I need. Is a 28mm offset the same as 5.25 backspacing? tim

no. backspacing is offset plus half the width rim to rim (rim to rim is 1" more than wheel width).

Offset is the measurement from the hub mounting surface to the centerline of the wheel.

Backspacing is the measurement from the hub mounting surface to the outside edge of the inside of the wheel.

One also has to keep in mind that an 8" wheel is in reality roughly 9" wide overall. Width is measured on the inside of the bead.
