Default wheel clearance question for A&C kits

I'm trying to figure out what wheel spacers I'm going to need for the rims I have. I went with 17x9 in the front and 17x10.5 in the rear. If someone has used this wheel setup before on A&C kits, what backspacing number did you use in figuring out the thickness of the wheel spacer? I have searched this form and found people who used taller and wider rims went with a 4.5" backspacing for the front and the rear. Thanks for the help.

For anyone to supply realistic feedback you will have to supply additional information, which would be at least the off set/back spacing of the rim and if known the dimensions of the tire.

When I built my A&C, I got my wheels from Bob Lacey at vintagewheelsus.

He knew the back spacing and offset automatically for A&C.
You may want to give him a call. Tell him what you`ve got.

I ordered 17" bullitt replica wheels from Bob. They look awesome, fit nicely, and were fairly priced. I'm running 235s on front and 315s out back.
