You might want to consider buying 15 inch wheels. First, the larger wheel looks better on the car. Second, 14 inch tires are getting hard to find, you're really restricted in selection.

Factory stock wheels are more than likely going to have a 4.25" back space.

If you want to be CERTAIN, get yourself one of these:

and MEASURE directly what will fit on your car.

How accurate is the tool that is on your link? I was looking into the much more expensive one made by wheelworks.

I used Percy's Wheelrite to fit a 12.5" wide tire in my stock wheel well, it worked perfect. I highly recommend it, money well spent.

I'm running 15's on the back and 14's on the front. Gives it that classic Muscle car stance. I believe the bs is 4 3/4".
