Various Wheel Offsets

I have not had to measure offset before so I may be off by a bit but do these figures sound correct?

Stock tubed steel rims (centre riveted to rim) (1992) +35mm
NATO tubeless steel +25mm
Zu Alloy +11mm
5 Spoke Challenger (15in they claim 16in coming)

If I am reading things correctly then the NATO get you 1" of increased track width and the Zu Alloy 2" without using spacers, can anyone comment on how much each would improve turning circle if the same size tires were used?

I have a set of Zu coming for the 110, but I was thinking of widening and offsetting the stock tubed ones for use with Simex tubed Centipedes, are they a reasonable choice for that?

Are your stocked tube wheels 6.5in or 5.5in?

I don't see why it would not work then, but why widen and not just recenter for more offset?
