1967 camaro mini tubbed question

Yes this is my 2nd post on here so I am still learing this forum so I hope I do this right I have a 67 camaro that has been mini tubbed using factory style tubs and moving them in and using the dse quadralink kit with ridetech shock waves and a narrowed rear at 54.75 inches axle flange to flange I have willwood 4 piston calipers and 14 inch rotors. What I am wondering if y'all think a 19x12 inch wheel will be to wide dse recommens 19x11 with a 5.5 in bs but the car is hooked up by billet specialties and they only have 10 and 12 inch wide wheels in 19s I want the deep lip look and don't really car if a shorter tire is used when measured I have almost 16 inches from fender to frame rails any suggestions please I would like to use there wheels if possible but think a 10 inch wide tire may look a little funny with the tubs thanks any help will be greatly appreciated

My 67 with minitubs runs a 14.5x31x15 on a 15x12 with 4"bs. I also have 15x14" wheels with 4" bs with a 16.5x31 but they are close to the leading edge of the outer fenderwell.

That's good info. Are you still running the back seat? I have widened my inners without getting into the frame rails and am only able to tuck a 15x10 on a 275/60. Kinda stinks because I was shooting for a 12.3 wide section at 28 tall but the side walls were to tight to lip. I fitted a MT 12.1 section but at 26 tall way to short. I guess what I did gain is I don't have to jack up rear to clear the 275's.

No back seat at the present. Car is caged so it would be quite a site to see someone get back there! My outter wheel lips have been trimmed considerably but still look stock from the outside. The car has a narrow Fab9 rear with coilovers so I gained some room there as well without the lower shock mounts on a stock rear. Looking back, my backspacing is not what that on a stock GM rear would be. Oops!

Sounds killer. Post some pics. I also may do some trimming this winter to fit my wish list tires
