15s 4 inch too 6 inch with ...depending on the room, stance, and steering. Back space depends on axle with, brake style and distance needed to clear the inside of fenders, at ride hight.

As to cookie cutter there are just so many options and that is the way it is , now how one puts the cookie cutter parts together, the proportions of the complete build will make it stand out in the crowd.
