Aftermarket wheels and rear spacers?

Looking at 12” aftermarket wheels for my 400HO - with the 4+3 offset of these wheels, how wide a spacer will I need to keep the front/rear wheel track the same?

Not sure I follow???? You don't need spacers if going with a 4+3 offset wheel. As for "tracking" the front will be inside the track of the rear. In other words the rear wheel will cover the font wheels tracks.

The rear oem offset is 6+2, so wouldnt the rears be narrower than the fronts without spacers?

No cause the fronts are a 6" wide wheel. So the two different widths and offsets keep them in line. So you don't need to compensate when going to a 4+3 wheel.
