Wheel Backspacing with Mini Tubs

I will be installing the DSE mini tub kit on my '69 soon and am curious about the wheel backspacing for my new setup. I'm not going to narrow the rear end. I see lots of people running 9.5" wide with 5.5" backspacing on stock configs. If I were to run a 11" wide tire, would I use a 7" backspace with the tubs? That would keep the tire in the same position in relation to the wheel housing, correct? Not totally sure of the wheel size I will end up with, I am just wanting to understand the backspacing more and how different backspacing effects the wheel position. Thanks!

If you add 2" to your wheel well then you theoretically could use 2" more backspace and tire.
I would wait till it was done and measure to be safe.

Thanks for the response Doug. I will wait and measure everything before I click the buy button as you suggest.
