67 'Vert wheel size help pls

Have a new to me 67 Camaro convertible. It currently have oversize chrome bs wheels.

I am looking at replacing. I was planning on going 15x7 rally's in the front and 15x8 rallys in the rear.

However - i found a local deal for 4 15x8 Monte Carlo(4) Rally with Trims and caps.

Will I have rubbing issues in the front with 15x8 rallys with BFG TA Radials? Does anyone have a suggestion on tire size???

What are the backspaces on these Monte Carlo wheels? You'll definitely have rubbing if going full turn of the steering, lock to lock will rub so you'll just have to avoid turning the steering wheel all the way over. I've got 235/15s on my front on 15 X 7s with 4.5 backspacing and the outer side of the tire just misses the fender when the fender bounces down by about 1/8" clearance and I have stiff springs. 15 X 8 wheels will bring the tire out just a bit more.

hmm, you sure they're 8" Monte Carlo ? Check the code by the valve stem hole. Common 15x7 Monte Carlo are FW coded.

I also have a 67CONVERT -a 15x8 on all 4 corners , a Stock type 67 wont look good ( IMO )
15x8 generally came on the vettes , 68 n up till aound late 70s to early 80s if i remember right .

the 67s came with 14s , im sure you would have no problem with a 15 on the front but use a 6 or 7 inch with an appropriate tire size. maybe a 205 or a 215 ...
I guess it depends on the style and look your after as well...

Garfielsds is right , FW - 15x7 , and BACK SPACE WOULD BE 4-1/4 on a MONTE WHEEL.
most comon rally wheel out there and came on a number of cars...monte"s , caprice , impalas , camaros...chevelle , 71 n up most any GM .( as stated in the Wheel code page )

i have 2 or 3 sets of FWs here
