Hi! I'm getting new wheels and I have a couple questions. I have a 76 gran torino, Plan on putting 15x8's on the back and 15x7's in the front 0mm offset, with a 4.5 inch backspace. I have my eyes set on a certain rim style, but for the 15x7 they only make the backspace 4 inches, so would a 4.5 in the back and a 4 in the front look funny? Or would 15x8's all around fit? I'm also new to this page, Thank you!

Welcome aboard. That's kind of a personal flavor and what look your trying to achieve. With a 4.5" back space on the outer wall of the tire will only stick out a half inch further rather than a full inch. I really don't think the difference will be that noticeable. Where the difference may come into play is if you lower the car and need to tuck the tires into the wheel wells. Personally, I like the look on a muscle car when the wheels are kept tucked.
