Lightbulb 1969 Camaro wheel size

Need some help guys! Can someone tell me what back spacing I would need for 17x8 or 17x9.5 rear wheels? I don't want the tires to stick out from the body but I'm not sure what size to get. Thanks Don

LOTS of info on what works/doesn't work in the "Wheel & Tire" forum.

Frank is right,4.75-4.875" on a 17x8 front and 5.5" on a 17x9.5 rear.
For tires,I like a 245/45 front and a 275/40 rear...these should fit without issues.

With the 275's on the rear did you have to roll the fenders in? Any lowering or did you leave it at stock heights?

No rolling required even with a 2" drop
