Question 1969 Camaro Rim n Tire question

I am planning on purchasing new 17 inch polished Torque Thrust rims and tires for my 1969 Camaro. From what I can see from reading the threads with pics I seem to be able to do 17x8 in front and 17x9.5 in the rear. Can anyone tell me what the back spacing would be for both. I can see that 4 to 4.75 might work in front and 5 to 5.5 in rear? Is this accurate? Do I need spacers? The frame is stock and there is aftermarket discs in front and drums in rear.

Part two: If the above17x8 rims fit in front, can a 245/45 tire fit?

Part three: If the above 17x9.5 fit in rear, should I do 255/45 or 275/45s? Yes I want as much tire as possible( but no rubbing.) Thank you in advance for your time.

The best advise you can get is from your own measurements! If I hadn't done my own I would have never gotten my 17x9.5" out back (lowered 2.5"). Heres a link that will help you out.

By the way beautiful car!

Hey Jeff... Not to bogart your thread, but what kind of exhaust are you running on your Yenko? I like the way the pipes look at the rear.
