Z/28 rim backspace question

Hey Folks,

i'm a member of Team Nova (SHIFTY4) and i was hoping maybe someone here can help me... i have a '64 ChevyII that i'd like to see if a set of Z/28 rims would fit my car.

here's a pic of the rims i'm interested in, can anyone tell me what the backspace on these rims would be ?

also, i believe this wheel was offered for a few years, could someone tell me the years offered ?

Thanks !!!

4 1/4"

Chevrolet By The Numbers lists the offset as .30, so they have the same backspacing as the common 5 handhole 15" ralleys found on Camaros and Monte Carlos, which is 4 1/4".

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.
