I have got 15X8 Corvette Rally rims. Whats the biggest size i can buy?

1969 camaro, Stock height, from and rear sway bars, front disc by delco, drum in the back, I have 15X8 corvette rally i believe from the 1st generation Corvette. I have 295-60-15 on the back and 245-50-15 on the front. They came off a Bel-Air. I do not believe that they will fit... Does anyone know what is the max. tire size that fits under a 69' camaro?

Measure first. Actually put the bare rims on the car. I'm pretty sure vette rims are 4" backspace, and firstgen's are happiest with 4 1/2.

A 295 tire is not gonna fit "under" a 69 Camaro, and certainly not with a 4" backspace rim.
The 245 is pushing the limit's hard in front, but can fit with exactly the right backspace.

Yeah i should research the true back space for the corvette rims. And i will measure the rims before they actually go onto the car. Sorry for the terrible spelling for the title of this thread.
