Most likely lowered some and about 28" tires out back and I'd say about 165/70's up front.
Just a guess.

I need to drop my front some

If your going with a 10.5 wide tire the wheel will be shallow I can tell you that.I am sure someone here has the answer.

Re: Where can i get this setup of tires but street legal

Just my opinion here, but I think the black '68 Camaro in the photo has a narrowed rear-end and the tubs behind the quarter panels have been enlarged. It's difficult to say for sure, but that's the impression I get when I look at it.

I think those rims in back might be 10 inches wide or more and have very little backspacing. If they were installed on a different '68 Camaro that does not have a narrowed rear-end, then I imagine they would stick out several inches past the fenders. (Instead of tucking in neatly as shown in the photo.)

Would anybody agree with me, or are my eyes failing over here?

Re: Where can i get this setup of tires but street legal

I had 15x8" wheels with 4.5" bs, with 28x12.5" M/T ET Streets on the rear of my '68 and they fit perfectly with no rubbing. I have Caltrac split mono leafs and Caltrac bars. Mine looked similar to the pic. A set of 15x3.5" to 15x6" on the fronts will give you a similar look with either lowered springs or cut trick springs. Because it looks like he has 26" tall front tires.
