I have a chance to buy these wheels and tires. They are the chrome 17x9 WS6 style wheels by SLP performance. The tires are 274/40/ZR17
I want to try and run these on my 67 convertible. I have measured the BS on these and its almost 7" or close as it was hard to get it perfect with the tires mounted. I know I will have to buy wheel adapters to make these work. What size adapters? Will front and rear adapters be different sizes?
Will this large of a tire and wheel work at all on the front??
I dont want to buy these if its going to be a huge pain to make them work??
I doubt the front's will fit, even with big adapters to clear the inner fender the tire will stick way outside the fender lip. I have seen them on a '67/'68 with about a 1 1/2" - 2" adapter but it required removing the inner fenders.

From what I've seen and read, wheels from a fourth gen Camaro/TA require large spacers or won't fit at all. Look for wheels from a third gen (82 - 92) Camaro or S-10/Sonoma trucks, as most of those have a more appropriate backspacing.

Well to directly answer your question no but...........take a look at this http://www.pro-touring.com/forum/showthread.php?t=43322 TetoJones (Tyler from ATS) is also a memeber here and that car is on an older thread in our pro-touring forum. If you read the thread from the P/T site you will see why you can force the wheels to work but it's going to be much harder with a 275 tire.
