backspacing help w/ narrowed rearend???

i was wondering if anyone has put 17 x 13 on a 69 chevelle, w/ a narrowed rearend? the rearend is narrowed 2inches on each side. i had it done because i wanted to run the stock ss 14 x 7s w/ the largest tire i could find, which was the m. t. indy profile L60-14. however, now that i have more money i would like to try to get 17 x 13s on there. i saw someone had used 6.25 backspacing, but is that w/ a stock width rearend? any help would be appreciated. thanks guys

My car has 17x13's but it's also been backhalved w/full tubs. Its Fab 9 rear is 56" wide,,6" narrower than stock.
So,you're going to need narrowed frame rails and wider wheel tubs to run that wide of a rear wheel,IMO.
