I have spent quite a bit of time researching tire and wheel size for my 68 Camaro. The 235/60/15 seem to look right for all four corners. The problem is, will they rub the front trim/wells? Does anyone have 235's in the front? Do they work. Any other suggestions or sites to look at Camaros w/ tire sizes would be great. Thank for the help!

That's what I run on the front of my 69', I think the consensus has been that this is the optimum tire size for the front of the first generation Camaros. However, if your suspension is not up to par, they WILL rub. I have new big block coil springs and KYB's on mine, so they have not rubbed at all.

I have 235/60-15 BFGoodrich Radial T/A's on all four corners of my '69Z and they work fine - no rubs, right look.

I've got the same size - Firehawk FTX. Stock springs on the front, small block, '68.

I had 235/60 15 BFG T/A on my 67 at one time. They were mounted on 15 x 7 rally wheels. Mine actually rubbed a little. They only rubbed at full turn. They rubbed the sub frame behind the tire in the direction I was turning. It didn't rub bad enough to bother me. They did not hit any of the trim, it just rubbed a small spot on the frame. They looked good at fit the wheelwell nicely but I eventually went to 16" late model wheels.

I had the same problem on my 68 as squarles 67, 15x7 Cragars with BFG 235/60/15-rubbed frame on rear edge at full steering lock-no other problems. I don't remember the backspacing and the wheels and tires are now long gone so I can't help you out with that, sorry.
