What you want is the replacement front wheels centre when viewed from above to be exactly where the stock wheels were. This is for geometry reasons and also for wheel bearing kindness.
As for the rear the geometry is not important at all and as stated the bearings will take it anyway, get them to look right.

I would remove all the factory spacers and then buy spacers of the hub adapting type, they come with the extra nuts needed and do a good job of keeping the wheel centered when viewed from the side.
