5" Back Spacing on 15x7 Rallys?

Will 15x7 Rallys with 5" back spacing work on my 69 coupe? The rims are from a mid seventies corvette? From what I read on here it sounds like everyone is using 4" bs on the 15x7 rallys. Thanks in advance for any help.

Well, it will leave you with just 2" of rim and tire on the outside by the fender lip. That is a full extra inch away from the fender lip. I don't think that would look very good.

I bet the mid 70's vette wheels are 15x8 though and other than being real close and possibly rubbing on the inner fender a bit would work. I had 15x8 5" bs on the back of my '69 with 255/60-15's and in corners they rubbed a bit...

Clint,
I have 15x7 with 4 1/2 bs on all 4 corners of my 69.I have 235/60 on the front and 275/60 on the rear.This combo fits with no rubbing.My car set at stock level and not lowered.It's in my opinion that is the most back spacing you can use with these size tires.The front tires will clean off the dirt on the frame rail if you corner hard with the steering locked left or right.
