Default Wheels

It's been a while but my engine is finally being built and I want to order my wheels. I have wilwood brakes and the front adds 1.5" to the total width. I'm going with 17x11 rears and 17x8 fronts. A&C says 4" bs for the back so I guess I need 5" bs to add the extra inch inside and they say 4.5" bs on fronts so I need 5.25 bs for the fronts to account for what the wilwood brakes add.

My question do the rear tires stick out further than the fronts when the body is mounted? The distance between my rear mounting surfaces is 54 1/8" and front is 56 3/8 so I'm coming up with the rears being about 1.5"-2" wider than the fronts on each side. Does that make sense?
I'd rather measure couple more times than order wheels 2 times haha
