Re: Max rim width on lowered 69 camaro
I have 17x9.5 with 5.5 BS in the rear of my 69 convert. Tires are 275/40-17 Potenza RE750's. I had to trim a very slight amount on the pass side rear, only because the rear wasn't perfectly centered under the car. I only trimmed 1/8 - 3/16". I havent had a single rub, but also haven't had 4 people in the car, either. Same rear discs as Dennis. I can't imagine fitting anything bigger back there without doing surgery - it's very close, but seems fine.
On the fronts, I have 17 x 8 with 4.75 BS and 235/45-17. No rubs there, either. I did make some adjustable steering stops - not due to a tire rub but due to the fact that on very sharp turns the wheel would hit the upper A-arm and wipe the wheel weights off of the wheel.
Car is lowered with Hotchkis 1907 front coils and 2407 rear leafs.
