Is this crazy??

I am building a pro-touring 67 camaro convertible. I want to take it on the power tour and DRIVE this car. I have 17x7 torq thrust II wheels on it now, on all 4 corners. I want to go wider on the wheels and thought that I should keep all 4 the same size for rotation purposes. What do you all think about this??

Will the largest tire and wheel combo for the front work in the back as well??

I will be going back to torq thrust II wheels so 17x ???? for the front and the B.S.??

Thanks!

Travis

Yeah but it would be like 17x8 all 4-corners. Just get a wider tire for your 17x7.

Yes depending on the tire and your back space, your rim should 255/45/17 but double check because all tires are different. Just go down to your local tire shop and have them measure with what you have now and what you can have later.
