Default Wheel backspace and offset question

Hi guys!
I'm in the midst of buying a set of 16 x 7 cross laced spoke wheels. Would anyone know the backspace and offset of these rims.?

The reason I'm asking is because I want to put them on my Olds Cutlass Ciera.
If anyone has more knowledge or experience as to what wheels will interchange, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you!
Jack

Offset is generally 42 or 43 mm for the crosslace wheels from what I have found.

Thanks guys!
I know the bolt pattern is correct, ..just alittle concerned about clearance near the strut areas being that these cars never came with a wider, larger wheel.
