I just did the conversion on mine. I used TruDesign to build a set of 17s for me. Mine are 8 & 9.5....I had him make the offsets in such a way that no spacers were needed. I used a 7in Fuchs (with a known backspace) with no tire mounted to it...mounted it on the car...and used the fenders and flares to determine what backspace I wanted without having to use spacers.
