I'm pretty sure that 10 in the rear is too wide without rolling fenders, unless you get smaller tires. I've got 9.5 in the rear and I rub sometimes on bumps or if I have passengers in the back.

Stock offset may vary by the type of rim you have. For many the stock offset was I believe 50 in the front and 47 in the rear. Don't quote me on that. As rcsummers stated, you really will have to take the rims off to check the offset.

Find your wheels here, http://felgenkatalog.auto-treff.com/, and find what the offset is.
