Yeah, both. The wider width in the rear will make the stance equal.

Of course stretch, the wheels will be poking out the side of the car. 205/45 front and 225/40 rear with rolled fenders in the rear.

well this might all change now, cause diamond racing doesnt make 16inch, so im going with 15 inch, so i wanna go with a high series tire maybe fill in the wheel gab....

my fronts and rears are rolled already, plus i have coilovers so i can adjust if necessary

15s are a little tougher, because tire choices get more limited. 205/50 F and 215/45 R would work, but you may have trouble finding matching tires.

Well, I am often wrong so take this with a grain of salt.

For 0 offset, divide the width by 2... 15x8= 4 inch backspacing?

15x10=5 inch backspacing?

Then plus or minus whichever direction you feel like going in.
