Re: 16's to 17's size questions before I order?
I don't know how people are running 9.5" wide with 5.5" backspacing on the rears of there 68 camaros. My camaro is pretty much the stock setup besides the Hotchkis setup and I am running 16x8's with a 255/50 tire in the rear. i only have about an 1.25"-1.5" of clearance between the inside of the wheel and the inner fender well.
If you do the match, I run a 26" tall tire with about 10.1 tread section width. Guys running 17x9.5's w/5.5" backspacing are running a 275/40/17's, thats 11" wide section width and one more inch of backspacing.
How is that fitting on there cars. I run the original rearend and everything?
Those who are running this setup, how much room do you have between the inner tire and the inne fender/rearframe?
