Here is where the seller should look.

Where the spokes meet the hub of the wheels, there are multiple stampings inside the small indentations pictured.

These numbers and acronyms indicate the wheel diameter, width, offset, factory part number, wheel quality testing certifications, etc. for that specific brand/model.

This should help your seller out:

This is the back of a VB3 wheel. The [40] in that machined pocket is where the offset is stamped. If you need to verify the diameter and width, it's stamped on one of the outer machined pockets.
