Default steerable pusher axle

OK, if you dont know what that is, please dont bother...not looking for opinions, just facts...

I will be setting up a truck soon with a pusher axle, which will be steerable and lift...yes, using a complete new frame, not adding to the old frame...my only real question is, what distance should the centerline of the pusher be from the centerline of the front tandem?
I'm kind of concerned about tire skid, but not sure if this is really an issue or not (obviously, thats why its steerable)..does the travel path of the 2 different steer axles, combined with the tandems have an adverse affect if the axle isnt located in the best position, or is it simply a matter of clearance and thats all there is to it? I've been doing a little research, and all the trucks I see setup this way have more room between the front tandem and the pusher then there is between the tandems, but I cant find anything that says how much space should be between them.
