Re: 17x8 or 17x9.5 wheels to use with 275 tires on 67?
i just bought the custom 17 by 9.5 with the 5.5 b.s. mine fits but i have about an inch between inner tire and inner fender. i have a 2nd gen rearend under my car. 2nd gen rearends are one inch wider than 1st gens. i may end up going with a 6.5 inch back spacing and use a 1/4 or 1/2 spacer. as with most camaros my driverside wheel sticks out about a 1/4 to 3/8 futher than the passengerside. i really think a 285 would fit under there with the proper back spacing. i am running the hotchkis tvs and i have about the same rear fender gap as you do. i think mine will settle a little after i drive it. only one wheel came in so i cain t drive it yet. yours looks pretty good by the way. i did roll my rear fender lips. if it rubs on the driverside i may have to order just one wheel with the correct offset for the driverside. if it does not workout i can always just put them on my 71 camaro as that is what they run. so for all yaw running 2nd gen rearends you will need to run a 6 to 6 1/4 inch back space.
