Default wheels for 81 malibu

I'm looking for a set of wheels for a 81 malibu, I'm looking for skinies in the front and 8's in the rear can some one tell me what back space works well on this car?

Default 81 malibu wheels

I am pretty sure that the back space needs to be 4.5 that will allow you to get a 28x10 on the car if you want.

I HAVE A 79 MALIBU WITH A 12 BOLT OUT OF A 67 CHEVELLE WITH LADDER BARS AND COIL OVERS AND I CAN RUN 4.5 BACKSPACING ON 28X10.5 WITHOUT ANY FRAME NOTCHING.BUT IF YOU HAVE A 7.5 YOU CAN ONLY RUN A 3.5 BACKSPACING, ANYTHING MORE YOU WILL HAVE TO NOTCH YOUR FRAME
