I am reworking a 70 & 1/2 RS Camaro and have a SB406 with M20 4spd going into it. Also I have installed a Ford 9" rear with 3.50 gears for street and 4.11 gears for the strip. My question is this:
What is the stock backspacing on the Camaro 14" rallye wheels?
The Ford 9" is 1.75" wider on each side, so I'll need to add this to the stock backspacing when I order my 15X8 Corvette rallyes. Thanks in advance.

Well, since nobody responded, I found out some info on my own, thought I'd share it if anyone cares. The 15X8 Corvette ralleys I bought have 4" backspacing and since I needed 1.75" more in the rear, I will order two more from Wheel Vintiques with 5.5" backspacing which will still allow the tires to fit under the wheelwell.

I spoke to Eddie and he was very helpful and is only charging me $70.00 per wheel with whatever backspacing I need. There is no extra charge for different backspacing.
