67 Camaro Reproduction Rally wheels

I want to buy a set of reproduction Rally wheels for my 67 Camaro.
I can choose between these wheels (4 same width or a combination of them)
What would be your suggestions ? And what tyres to put on ?

15 x 6 : backspace 4 - offset +12
15 x 7 : backspace 4.25 - offset +6
15 x 8 : backspace 4.25 - offset -6

Re: 67 Camaro Reproduction Rally wheels

It's pretty much a matter of personal preference. Need to decide on the general tire size first. Do you want something similar to stock/original size or as big and beefy as possible, something in between ? Same size front and back or bigger in back ??

Re: 67 Camaro Reproduction Rally wheels

I bought 15x8 rear and 15x7 front. I would go 15x7 on all 4. That way all wheels and trim rings fit and look the same. My 15x8 have a bigger gap to the trim ring and it bothers me.
You can still mount big fat tires on the 7" wheels.

I like the staggered fitment. 7s up front and 8s in the rear. With a 255/60 in the rear. I also have a staggered fitment on my 97 18x9.5 and 18x10.5. I also like the chrome rallyes.. Then you don't have to worry about trim rings

But in the end YOU have to like it

What are your plans for your car? Big difference in if you are going for a stock as possible show car vs something you plan to drive and put so miles on. 14" would be more correct if that is the direction you are going...

I think I'll go for 15x7. A little bigger then stock but still that retro/original look.

Good choice. I think you will be glad you did.
For tires I would do 255/60/15 rear
215/65/15,or 215/70/15 front,good looking combo.

Re: 67 Camaro Reproduction Rally wheels

how do you determine which trim ring width to use?

2", 2.5" or 3"?

thanks.
