wheels and tires

Hey guys, I am looking for a little help on wheel and tire sizes. I have a 1969 camaro RS, all stock. I have looked at the thread with 69 wheel and tire combos but havent really seen what I would like to do.

The car currently has 15x7 rally wheels with 215 60r 15 radial TAs. The car is lowered one inch in the rear with blocks.

I am thinking of going with the coys c5 wheels. I want to go 18 inch rims and I really don't want a lot of sidewall showing.(I know it will not ride good, but hey i dont get to drive it much anyway) I was wondering how big I can go and what tire sizes?

Can i put 18x8 inch rims on the front? What about the back?
Also, could i run 235 tires? I dont want to go with huge looking tires. I have the summit 3 inch exhaust and it creates a clearance issue in the back wheel well

Re: wheels and tires

I think 18 would be good....I had/have 19s on mine....I had rubbing in the rear and and going down a size or two depending on how everything is after I get done with the suspension upgrade...
