If I wanted to run a 15x7 weld rim on the front, what backspacing should I get? Could I fit a 245/50/15 in the front with the right BS?

245/50 is about as large as you'd ever want to go on a 7" rim. That's a pretty wide tire (and heavy as well)...it almost seems to defeat the purpose of going with light weight racing wheels. Can I assume that you're just going for the look and not for performance?

I had 15x7 prostars on the front of my 85. 4.5" Backspacing. I ran 225/60/15's and it was just right in my opinion. Use an 8"rim if you want to run 245's.
