How big of a tire can I use?


Getting ready to order some wheels and tires for my street/strip 68 camaro....springs are in the stock location, and I am wondering what size wheels and tires I can run? I want to get the most I can in there, will be running this car in brackets with about 625 HP.....

I know the standard is a 4.5 inch back space for cars like this, but I have heard of someone that makes a 4.75 BS wheel, and some people have put 5 inch BS wheels on with a spacer....

Can I get 11 inch tires in the wheel well? I don't mind slightly raising the rear of the car if I have too-

Thanks guys-
