TT2 Front backspace question

I am building a 68 Camaro. I was wondering if anyone has ordered the 15x7 TT2 with 3.75" backspace for the front. I am shopping on the Newstalgia Wheel website, and they have these in stock. If I need more backspace, I need to step up to a custom built wheel, which costs more. I am looking at running a 225/60 or 235/60 tire on the front. I looked at the 8" wheel, but it sounds like a lot of people have rubbing issues. Thank for your time.

Re: TT2 Front backspace question

I would like to here an answer to the original post as I am looking at replacing my rallys with the TT2's My front rallys are 15x7 with 4 1/4 bs. They do rub easily on the inner wheel at the subframe. Something with a back space between 4 1/4 and 3 3/4 would help. I just don't want the rims to stick out too far.

I have 235/60r15's on the front rims.

Re: TT2 Front backspace question

Hello all,
Hope you had a Merry Christmas!!
I haven't had issues running the 15x7 w 3.75bs on the front of the Camaro!! It is a very common setup. Of course every car is different, but I've had almost 100% success with it. I would stick with a 235/60 which is plenty tall for the front.
If your car is heavily modified, or really low, I would consider building a wheel with more backspacing.
The Rocket Fuel in 15x7 has 4.25bs if your worried about clearance!!
I don't think you'll have issues with either!!
Feel free to call if I can help you with any questions!!

Re: TT2 Front backspace question

Thank you to Mitchell from Newstalgia Wheel. He answered my question and my new wheels are on the way. I went with a 235 tire with a 3.75" backspace for the front, and a 255 tire with a 4.50" backspace for the rear. Looking forward to putting them on next week.
