    back spacing

    may be the dumbest guestion ever but.
    how do i figure the correct back spacing for my car so i dont rub the insde of my tires and they fill the wheel well.
    i would like to go up to a 18x9 r 10 on the front and a 18x10 r 11 on the rear.
    problem is i dont want them to stick out. i would like the to be as close to even with the fender as possible(a little out is fine). i hate the fact that my 17x9 z06 are about an inch are so tucked in the fenders (mostly the rear)

    The back spacing is from the inside of the wheel, where the lug nut holes seat onto the hub, then you measure out to the edge of the rim. Probably around 5.5" - 6.5" or so...
