1968 camaro (need help on wheels) sizing, tires etc.

hey,

Im looking at getting the coy c-5s or the coy c57s. (for my 68 camaro)

and my questions are:

I would like to run a 18x9.5 in the rear but would this require shortening my rear axle? or anything of that sort? or any large modifications to the front or rear suspension

and what is a good size to run in the front? a 18x7?

and also what kind of backspacing should i use?
and suggestions on tire sizes?

i want a good stance on the vehicle.. the pro touring type.. every day driveable and long distances.

(also they will be going over the new 4 wheel disc brake convo kit i just got in)

thanks for your help...

Doug, welcome to Team Camaro....you can fit an 8" wheel on the front with a 4.875 backspace and on the back you can fit a 9.5" without any rear end modification but you will need at least a 5.5" backspace. As far as tires, you can run a 235 or 245/40 up front and a 275/40 in the rear without any hassles.
