What is the widest tire and wheel combination in a 15" that you can run on a 68 camaro without tub's? Please include wheel size and backspacing and tire size..thanks If you have pics that would also be much appreciated...

Re: 15" wheel and tire combo's

Cody,

I have 15" rally wheels and I've learned this:

A 275-60-15 will fit if the backspace is perfect. A 255-60-15 is better. You will need a wheel with 4.5" backspace.

NPD sells these.

Re: 15" wheel and tire combo's

You also need to take into account width vs. the ride height of the car.

I'm running 225/60's up front on 15x7's with 3.76" BS and they just clear full lock to lock on my car with Hotchkis springs F + R. My front fender lips are 24.75" from center to ground.

In the rear I run 245/60's and could easily go to 255's with the same 15x7's and 3.76" BS, rear fender lip height is 27.25".

I'm also running 225/60's up front on 15X8 corvette rallys. Haven't driven it in several years so I'm not sure if they rub. If they do I'll switch to the 15X7's.
