15x8 4.33" BS and 15x10 4.4" BS on a 69 Camaro.

I am interested in these wheels, but have concerns about fitment...

15x8 5x4.75" -4mm (4.33" B/S) & (x2) 15x10 5x4.75" -26mm (4.4" B/S)

I was hoping to run 235/60/15 fronts and 295/50/15s in the rear.

Pictures of the stance on my car.

You guys think the sizing is a no go? I'd really like to run the 295/50/15 rears but don't think they would work on a 15x8...

They would stick out in the back on a 69. 10inch is to wide for the back unless you have mini tubs and deeper offset. The front would probably be reeeaally tight or to close all together. That would be my thought.

-69 z/28, hotchkis suspension, Caltrac bars, 489' BB in the works.

4.5"-4.75" on the 8" front and at least 5.5 to 5.75" on the 10" rears.

You need 5.25" back spacing on the rear with a stock width rearend. I have 10" rims with 4.75" back spacing on the rear of my '69.

With the stock rearend and tubs the tires would rub occassionally on the outer lip of the wheel opening, 5" or 5.25" would work better. If you went to 5.5" BS it will start rubbing on the inner part of the wheel well.
