More like 4.88" backspacing, for a 35 offset.
A 6" wide wheel is 7" wide outside, so a zero offset would be 3.5" backspace.
Add 35 x .0394(mm) = 1.38 inches, to the 3.5 offset and you're now at 4.88 inches

To wrap this up - I went with wheels from VTO. I was very pleased with their selection, service and quality. They suggested a 24mm offset. I would highly recommend them. Mounted and balanced them and they are on the car. Now I just have to paint the car.
