My 12 bolt wheel mounting surface with discs is the exact same length as a factory 12 bolt with drums wheel mount surface.( rotors are just a little thicker then the drums so when I cut my ends off for pressed on bearings/moser axles I compensated for the added rotor thickness)

Maybe these pics will show more difference.

17 x 8 rear wheels with 4 3/4"bs 255's (drum brakes)


17 x 9.5 rear wheels with 5 1/2" bs 275's (disc brakes)

All DSE front end, coil over relocation, koni's, DSE UCA/LCA etc. Back is DSE 3" drop leaf w/offset shackle, so basically its lowered 3". No problem with front rubbing, I could pick it up another 1/2 inch but I like the stance.

I am thinking about going with a 15X7 in the front to put on a smaller tire like a 205 I am getting a little rub when I crank it all the way.

Rear: 15X8 with 4.5" bs and 245/60/R15

Style:
Wheels: Chrome corvette/camaro rallye wheels from Coker Tire with '67 caps.
Tires: BFG Radial T/A from Coker Tire

Modifications:
None, has original front suspension, rear monoleaf and 12 bolt rear.

Notes:
Thanks to everyone for the help in selecting tire sizes and backspacing! If I was to reorder I would do it exactly the same. Both front and back sit about 1/2+ inch inside the wheel lip. Coker gave great service and fast shipping. I will be ordering a set of redlines to go with my original steel wheels and covers soon.
