I had a 78 that I ran 275 50 15 on it with no problems at all. Not sure how much larger you can go.

I just ordered new tires for my 78 and we fit 275/60/R15's on the back and 255/60 on the front. Tis is using the 15x8's off my 80 Firebird. The snowflakes look a bit wierd on a Camaro, but it worth it over the stock 15x7's

Re: what will fit my 79?

I have seen the same combo as well on 1978-1981 Camaro's. That would be P275/60/R15 in the rear and P 255/60/R15 up front. The OE size on many 1978-1981's was P225/70/R15 all the way around.

255-60-15 up front could be very tight. 245s soometimes rub the sway bar.

Feather-light suspension, Konis just couldn't hold
I'm so glad I took a look inside your showroom doors
