911 8X16 Part # Questions

I've been searching for the correct part number for the 8X16 Fuchs with the 911 offset, and I've come up with the following:

P/N 911.362.117.00 = 10.6mm offset, 112mm backspace

P/N 911.361.020.45 = 10.6mm offset, 120mm backspace.

Questions:

How can 2 different wheels with the same rim width and offset have 2 different backspace dimensions?

Is there a visual difference between these 2 part numbers?

Will either of these fit satisfactorily on an '88 Carrera with the stock 225/50 tire size?

Are there any other numbers that will fit this application?
