Default Buying wheels for 1992 classic roadster

Ok, I need to know what wheels I need for a 1992 classic roadster, has 8.8 rear-end, drum brakes, just want to make sure I get correct backspacing, and the biggest tires I can use, don't want to get wrong wheels, vintage says 5" bs on front 6" on rear, is this correct?

While I built my Classic as a 427 "Street" I used Rocket Racing's Sunbrust wheels. 15X8 all around with a 3/4"+ offset in the rears, with the optionable knockoffs. They with 235-60-15 fronts & 275-60-15 rears, fit the fenders just right. R.B. Moore used the same wheels without the offset in the rear on his Classic. Look up Sunbrust on the site here for pictures, hope this helps Cheers Tom. P.S. I had people say nice wheels, too bad Cobras never had them, and I would say you are wrong, these Sunbrust were designed by "Peter Brock" designer of the Daytona Coupes, just for the 427 street.
