Default GU rim offset

Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone can tell me the exact off for the wheels on a 2002 GU Patrol.As I'm looking for a spare and possibly matching my trailer up to my Patrol.
Thanks, cheers

If they are Steel 16 x 8 rims like in the attached picture
Rim Width = 203mm
Overall Width = 230mm
Centreline = 230/2 = 115mm
Backspace = 123mm
Offset = 123-115 = +8
Weight = 15.8kg

Here is a pic I nicked off the net.

You can clearly see the 2 different types of rim.

The ones with the larger hole, which I have, can crack the "spokes" from hole to hole. Bloke at work had his replaced when they did that, mine are still fine.

Was checking my tyre pressures a couple of days ago and noticed my right front rim has started to crack through one of the spokes. Bugger, new rims also when I get my new tyres.

Swaggy,

Perhaps the offset is different between wagon or ute. Which is yours?
I have the rims CeeCee has pictured above. They are +10 offset.
I'm shopping around for a new set of black steel 16X8 rims at the moment. Everyone has a different answer when you ask what the standard GU rim offset is.
I have spoken to the following suppliers and got the following responses:

King Wheels: They suggest fitting -13 (only -13 is available in black) and not sure what the factory offset is.

ROH: Only manufacture -13. Not sure what the factory offset is, maybe 0.

Dynamic Wheels: They say the factory offset is +10. They offer 0, -13 and -22 offsets.

Local Tyrepower Store: He was told factory is -11.

Not so local ARB Store: He claims factory is 0 offset and they always fit -13 offset aftermarket.

All I know is I'm more confused than i was before.

EDIT: I took the time to check my owners manual today. It says right there that the factory offset for my vehicle is +10. If only I'd looked there in the first place.
Having said that I'm going to fit -13 offset Dynamic rims.

GU IV with the 17x8" alloys have +10mm offset. I have changed to -13mm 16x8 steelies and they are much better for not fouling on the inner guards and front mud flaps.

Geordie,
Does it handle much different?
I don't get any fouling with the factory steel rims (3 inch lift)... However I'm missing a front mud flap courtesy of some loaned mud terrains on 15X8 -22 offset steel rims. I didn't like how it handled with those 15 inch rims on.

Sorry to go off topic, but im looking at a set of GU Steelies 16x8 for my GQ. Will these just stick out an inch either side wider than the stock 15/7 Sunnies?

Cheers
