factory sport wheels question

My tire selection that I am running is: Front: 26x10x12 ITP Dunestars, Rear: 26x11x12 ITP Sandstars.
I am wanting to run stock factory rear Sport wheels which are 7.5" in width in the front with the 10" wide Dunestars.
On the rear, I want to have another pair of 7.5" Sports widened to something like 9-10" wide for the 11" Sandstars.

Have any gearheads here ever done this, have input regarding the widening process, backspacing issues jumping from 7.5" up to the widened 9-10"? Would it be feasible to cut up 4-7.5" sport wheels, cut them at different widths to equate my 9-10" of width and then weld together? My car is an 06 Sport with stock suspension.

first the rear wheels will not go on the front, they are too deep without spacers, you do not need to widen the wheels to run the rear tires you stated.

I love the Sport wheels that my 06 came with and want to keep that factory stock look with my bad-boy Star paddles front and rear. Any idea what spacer I would need on the front for the 7.5" sport wheels? All about backspacing I'm sure. I will try mounting them on and should be able to get a rough idea what spacers will be needed if noone knows for sure and post my results........LBR

do not run paddles on the front, they will actually rob power
