Default backspacing and offset questions

I'm looking to buy steel wheels for my 95 4x4 2 door blazer. I would like a little bit more negative offset than the stock wheels that are on it right now.

Here are the specs that I know of:
the lug pattern is 5 x 4.75 and that stock backspacing is 6" on 4x4 models.

What I want to know is what is the stock wheel width as I plan to use the same tires on the new wheels as the stock ones, and how much negative offset can I use on the front without the wheels rubbing on anything.

Also I want to make the rear wheels stick out just as far as the front so I was wondering if I should just get 4 of the same wheels and use spacers in the rear or if I should order a different set of 2 rims with a larger offset.

Any help would be appreciated thank you.

Let me reword some of that, sense they look like they have a lot of positive offset already, how much less offset and backspacing could I get away with.

If you have aftermarket steel wheels on a 4x4 blazer if you could let me know what specs of wheels you run, that would be great too thanks.
