Torq Thrust II Rims & tires

I am in the process of purchasing 15x8 Torq Thrust II rims for my 69 Camaro. There is a lot of discussions on rims and tire sizes on the Forum, but I still do not know what will work and not rub. I would like as large of a tire that I can use. Should I purchase 15X7 rims fronts and 15X8 rear? Or the same size front and rear? What size tire front and rear?

THANKS VERY MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!!!

Re: Torq Thrust II Rims & tires

you shouldn't have any issues running 8's all around on either 235/45 or 245/45 tires,plus it makes it easier to rotate too.
backspace should be 4.5"-4.75".
