Post measuring for backspacing

I know what backspacing is and how to measure for it on existing wheels, but how do I measure for backspacing without wheels that already fit. I've seen articles on this in CHevy highporfamence and Car Craft, but i lost those issues. I have an 84 monte carlo and i believe my old centerlines had about 3.5" of backspacing. The reason i'm getting new wheels and don't have my old ones to reference from is become some lowlife jerkoff stole mine. Nothing hurts more than having your car violated. any way thanks for the help.
