15x10 backspace 69 ?

will a 5.5" backspace work on a 69 camaro ?
I had 15x10 3.5" b/s and buddy wants to trade for 15x10 5.5 b/s but camaro is at bodyshop so I can't go trial fit as working and too far away!

Nope...not unless you have a minitub. My 15x8's with 4.5" bs barley clear.

Re: 15x10 backspace 69 ?

When mine had stock wheel wells and stock rear end I ran 15X10's with 4-3/4" back space and 275/50 tires or 28X10" slicks. If you used these rims you might need to use spacers to keep the tires from rubbing on the inside of the wheel wells.

Here are some old pics with this set up.
