Default 1979 ta + wheel question

i am not quite sure as to the placement of this thread...if it needs to be moved either i can delete it and post it in the wheel/tire section or the magical mods can do it as well. i apologize in advance!

now for business... i have a 1979 trans am with a few modern conversions...well basically i need traction. i was wondering what the backspacing/offset is for the car? i knew at one point but i am blanking now. the fronts/backs are different.

All 1st & 2nd gen factory wheels are Zero Offset
Which means the mounting pad is dead center of the wheel.
