18”x8” wire wheel offset

I am pricing up some mods I want to do on a VN900 classic, one of which is a 240 rear tyre and replacement rear fender. I can get a kit from Delta Customs in Germany who offer to use the existing hub which they drill extra spoke holes from 36 to 72 then lace this to an 8”x18” rim. I can get this work done in the UK at a more reasonable cost but the wheel builder has not done one before but says should be no problem apart from he is asking about the wheel offset measurement for the new wheel. Should the relationship between the centre line of the hub and rim remain the same as with the stock wheel or does the offset need to be moved for any reason like clearing the drive belt?
Don’t know if any members have an 8”x18” wheel and could let me have the offset measurements?
Appreciate any help you can give.
