    Take off one of the wheels. Lay it on the ground with the back side of the wheel facing up. Lay something that is straight across the rim of the wheel so that it crosses the center of the wheel. You want to rest the ends of this straight edge on the wheel not the tire. You may need to cut a piece of wood or an old yard stick. With the straight edge in place measure the distance from the back side of the center of the wheel where lugs pass through to the bottom edge of the straight edge.

    From what I read in other posts the wheels on the last of the cameros and firebirds will fit on a 4WD S10 without problems. The article below said his wheels had 6.75 inches of back spacing.
