Tire/Rim size help
I have a 67 Camaro with a 396 in it that I am having some minor rub issues in the wheel well on the front passenger side.It is originally a 327 car. The car has 225/60/15 Radial T/A`s on 8" rims with a 4" backspace ( all the way around ). The car has had a disc brake conversion on the front, in addition to the front suspension being completely rebuilt ( all by the previous owner ). The front tires completely fill the wheel wells, while the rear has about a 3" space between top of wheel and top of wheel well opening (as veiwed from the side).The car also sits slightly higher in the back. I do not know much about what exactly the previous owner did to the car, but it almost seems like the front end was dropped a little bit. As the car sits, it drives and handles like a dream so I would hate to screw anything up. However, the rubbing issue needs to be fixed and it would be nice to get the car to sit more level and the gap between tire and wheel well opening more symetrical. Also, why would the front tire rub on the passenger side and not the driver side. It seems to rub on the bolt heads just inside the wheel well lip on the tops, and only does it when I hit a dip, bump or ripple in the road. I think a 4 1/2 " backspace might pull it in far enough to fix that problem, but not sure. Any advice on how to preceed? Anyone else ever encounter this problem? Help.
