Fuch offset and tire size

Like most "teeners" I'd like to see the fattest tires possible on my car without modifying my wheel wells. After reading several posts, I understand that tire clearances will vary depending on tire size and rim offset. The optimum combination appears to be a 205/60-15's mounted on factory Fuchs. I have a set of American Eagle "fake Fuchs". They have a "back spacing" (distamce from of rim's inboard tire bead to rim's mounting surface) of 4 ". How does this compare to factory Fuch back spacing?

Also are there any recommendations on 205/60-15's tire brands?
'85 Targa (fastest), '74 914 2.0 (funest), '71 VW Westfalia (slowest), '16 Q70L (wife's), '17 Armada (daily driver)
