What is the backspacing corvette stock wheels 1979?

Wanting to put centerline convo pro's 15x8.5 on my vette.

Not sure what backspacing to get for the new centerline convo pro wheels.

Want the same look as far as tires being about even with the fenders! Cobra radial gt 255/60 r15

Stock 15x8 galleys have a 4" back space. You can't go much deeper w/o relocating the parking brake cable bracket on the trailering arm.
