Default 2000 1500 15" rims and backspacing?

I have a 2000 1500 and I bought it with 15" american racing wheels on it and there aint much space between the rim and the caliper. I want to put another set of old gasser style 15s on it and was wondering if I needed a cirtain backspacing or whateverto clear the caliper. Im lookin to get 15x10s

if you are looking to clear the caliper more you need a bigger size rim. back spacing and off set are not going to help you getting the inside of the rim from be so close to the caliper just a bigger rim size.

if you have 15s on there now and it is clearing the calipers then i would assume any 15s would work, but you they would still be as close as it is now.
