Default Idiot question

Is the backspacing on the Xtreme wheels 4"?

These:



Brother's friend wants to put them on his 94-97 Camaro RS. I know bolt pattern will work but what about offset and backspacing? Spacers needed or is this completely out of the question?

That would be much appreciated. I tried searching LS1tech and found one thread where a guy wanted to put them on his car but he got flamed and never really got anywhere with it.

I thought that the RWD car apps were around the same BS as the 4wd s-series (6")...

Ok now a REAL idiot question...Are the above style rims 15x7 or 16x8? I found a resource showing the following:

"1993-2000 Camaros and Firebirds
16-inch: 16x8 with 6-1/2-inch back-spacing front, 16x9 with 61/2-inch backspacing rear. Use tires with an aspect ratio of 50 or less with a section width of 255 front, 275 rear."


SOURCE


So he SHOULD be able to run them with 2" spacers?

If stock wheels are 6.5" BS, the 4-4.5" BS of the blazer wheels will push wheels out. Spacers would push them further out.

I thought all xtremes were 16x8 but I am unsure of any exact measurements.
