Wheel Backspacing?

I see all of the Camaro Wheel specs like diameter, width, offset, and bolt pattern, but what is the BACKSPACING on the stock 20x8 and 20x9 wheels?

I am looking to buy a set of custom Snowflake Wheels for my Camaro Trans Am Conversion, and am having issues finding sources (other than the megabuck Forgeline's TA3 in the pic) that make them in 20", and need backspacing info to get them built correctly.

Here is a calculator you can use to convert backspace to offset and vice versa.

https://tireswheelsdirect.com/wheel-...ce-calculator/


And here are the calculated values for the stock SS wheels:
Front: 20x8 Offset: 35 Backspacing: 5.9
Rear: 20x9 Offset: 40 Backspacing: 6.6



Edit: remember to post pictures when you get the wheels installed!

Thanks all - just wanted to be absolutely sure a custom made wheel will fit as they usually are not returnable.
