Classic tires on a 1968 camaro
I have a 1968 Camaro convertible. I want to run 15” rally wheels (FW code with 4.25” backset) on the car and classic tires (Goodyear preferred). The rear has stock leaf springs but the front has 1” lowered coils. From floor to top edge of front fender lip currently is 26.5” (running 235/40-18 tires)...245/45-18’s fit inside but did not fit at a full lock turn (rubbed at rear of fender). I want to order the right tire. I am interested in the E70-15 Goodyear or the F60-15 Goodyear. Will either of those work with the 1” lowered front end...and at full lock turn? I appreciate your help.
This is not a question of should I run the tires
but will they fit correctly.
This is a fairly technical question and really might need the help of someone with an advanced wheel and tire calculator. If I use basic tools it seems to me that the E series will be too tall in the front... and the F60 might be a bit wide...
