No more spacers

I want to get new wheels and want to get rid of my 1 1/2" spacers. This is my first time dealing with spacers and don't want to get the wrong set of wheels. I read up on backspace but am still having some trouble. Any help would be great.

If you want the same overall width w/o spacers, find wheels with 1.5" less backspacing than you have currently. You didn't really give any other info so that's the best I can offer.

A tire shop will be able to give you exact measurements. Not Sears. But like a regular shop.
