Front wheel back spacing confusion

I know I know I did a search but cant find enough info or maybe I'm not using right key word.
But I am this close to ordering my new wheels and tires but one last piece to the puzzle is the back spacing on the front wheels. I'm going with a 225/50/17 in the front and would like to know what works for you guys.
The back was easy enough to figure out ( 255/50/17 with 4.5" bs ) but the front is more complex with the wheels turning and body roll and all.
Can you help steer me in the right direction ?

Re: Front wheel back spacing confusion

On what size rim?
My 68 has 18x7 BS4.25 (Foose Legends) with 225/45/18 Nitto 555 with no rubbing issues at all. Disc brakes, 1" drop GW S-2 springs (more like 2") Assuming 7"/8" rim and 4.25-4.50 BS you should be good...

Anything 4-41/4" BS on a 7" wheel is fine.
