you want about 110mm backspace, find an online calculator to see if these measurements you mentioned are in that ball park

you will need upgraded struts on front with that size wheel, for the tyre to clear the spring cup

also 7's is really fat for a 1200 front end, will need pumping to get clearance
8's on the back will require pumping also

having stretched tyres will help with that a little, 195 tyre is ample for the weight of a 1200 for typical applications, which is quite a skinny tyre for 8 inch rim!!!

1200 front end will also require footwell to be beaten back and front corner of gaurd to be modified out of the way of the turning circle


good luck

here's some pics of the 15x7's on my sedan.
i think utes have problems with the leaf springs being closer to the wheels???? and so you might have trouble with the 8's on the rear (MAYBE)
i am happy with the 7" all round though.
all my suspension/running gear is standard aswell. fronts fit with 8mm spacers even though i probs don't need to run them, i just like the look.

those tyres have some serious stretch which would be definately helping your fit

do you know your offset and tyre size?

i was planning on stretching the rubber anyway which is good i guess. and i kinda expected to have to modifiy the front a little to get the front ones to fit but should look pretty mean with them on very much so with the 8,s on the rear.
i just wanted the advice before i bought them and then had to put them in the garage cause they dont fit.
