Default Belltech spindle clearence

Hey, i Recently bought a 96 single cab and i was looking to lower it. As of right now my plan is to buy blocks and redrill in the back, and get the belltech spindles for the front with a 1-2" torsion drop in the front. What I have heard though is that most 15" and some 16" rims don't clear the lower control arm. Does anyone have and minimum measurements that I should be looking for in wheels?

The wheels I'm currently looking at are ar61's from American racing, but I'm not sure they will clear spindles.
some of the wheels specifications are:
15x8 6x5.5
3.75 in backspacing
4.25 in center bore
-19 mm offset

you should be fine, i’d say all 16’s will fit, my 15x8 with a 0 offset are close to the radius rods, so i had to do a bit of trimming on those. wheels you’re looking at shouldn’t have that issue being a -19 offset.
