Backspacing, Offsetting, Backsetting, Offspacing, Backoff, Spacing Setting Confused!?

hey every one, i need some help getting this through my head.
What is the difference bewteen backspacing and offsetting, what do they mean?

Im gunna be gettin new wheels for my sierra classic and i want them to stick out as far as they can. (only on the back, the front can stay tucked in) Im gunna get 10" rims for the rear and 8" rims for the front. So wat backspacing or offsetting would i need to get my rear wheels to stick out of the fender?

Sorry for the long story, but thanks for the help
