About Wheel measurments

I am getting ready to install a TCI mustang II ifs in the front with a Rear axle from a 80 trans am 62" wide 1954 chevy 5 window pickup. I'm shopping for wheels and am curious if there is a specific offset/backspace I need to have. what is original? My dimensions really shouldn't change much. Anybody help???

In Denver....

I think I would worry about the lug bolt patterns. As for the off set for the wheels, I think you need to wait and take measurements before you put any money down for the wheels. The old saying is "Measure twice, Fit once".

Good Luck
