Help on the wheel sizing for my 69 Camaro

I will be purchasing rims, and was hoping that I could get a few details covered before i go the step.

I am looking at rims that are 20" inches for all 4, the front is 20x9", and 20x10" in the rear. I have a stock body, no min numbers, no 4 link suspension etc. I have the multi leafs in the back and standard spring and shocks in front. bad news, the car runds 5x112+25mm bolt pattern, so I need to buy an adapter, which will change the pattern (is this bad?), obviously adding this adapter will push out the rim further, and may possible cause the rim to rub my fenders and quarters.

What i need to know is, what other details do i need to know about the rim before i purchase them. I would need to buy them without test fitting them, at which point returning them would be a hard hassle.

Those rims are going to be extremely tight. Even 9.5" rims will cause some rubbing in the back if you actually drive your car, and 8" is about the max you want in the front. The spacers will only make things worse.

What size tires are you looking to run that you want such large rims, and why do you have the odd bolt pattern?

Re: Help on the wheel sizing for my 69 Camaro

the rims i want are about 5,000, i am able to purchase them at 1500 used. Tires would probably be 35 series tires (maybe 40s in the back)..

thanks for letting me, i will have to pass on them then.

Btw the offset is 25mm
