Re: Wheel and tire size for 68 Camaro - Please read
Did you look in the first, (top), thread here?
AND Larry C's great Pro-Touring site has a big matrix on it that has what guy's are actually running if you want to look it up.
And a word of advice.
My stock, steel 14" x 6" painted wheels have a 3.75" b/s so set 2.25" as your front out "b/s", (If you will), and dish wider wheels in b/c my 14" x 7" Fenton slotted mag wheels with 3.5" b/s rubbed some on the outer lip chrome piece on the front with no bigger then E-60's on it!! (I.e., cut the sidewall a schosh!)...
AND I ran great big L-60/14's on 14" x 9" with 3.5" b/s on the rear but had to raise it about 4" using coil-overs! The L's measure a MODERN 298/53-14!! And I still have them mounted on my old slots. I figure they would tuck in fine/better with say a 4.5" to a 4.75" b/s...
(And I like the big/little tall rearend of the old-school look!!)....
Now I have Pony-car, "Bullitts", 17" x 8" on my car with 225 and 255/45-17's AND I know the 255's are way too small to even attempt to hook.
