my ralleys~67 camaro wheels and tires

I get asked this question every so often by private message so I thought I would share it to help out fellow members...

Thank you for your time.

I get asked this question alot. I agree also about the stance.
15x8 255/60/15's on the back with the standard 4" corvette back space, hotchkis 1 1/2" drop leafs. Front is 2" drop hotchkis coils with 235/60/15's standard 4 1/4" backspace. The hotchkis suspension is the answer to all problems. I think it only cost me $400 for the leafs and coils. Make sure you install the shackells that come with the leafs. I left the old ones on at first and the rear end was bottoming out.

"Bottoming out", you mean the rear tires were hitting wheel openings ?

The bell housing was hitting the floor when I hit the gas pedal hard or shifting hard. After the supplied shackles were installed it all worked great.

Wow ....I don't quite understand that, but the car looks good none the less....a lot like mine.


Those are AZ code rear wheels ? I presume the trim rings are the rounded 'vette style ? Any close up pics ?

Where did you get the coils and springs for $400?

Thanks,

I got it from these guys. http://www.mopacautosupply.com

I'm sure there's a shop in Texas that's similar. Go to the Hotckis web site and look up what dealers are in your area.

Re: my ralleys~67 camaro wheels and tires

When I had the Ralley's on my 67 RS coupe the front wheels were 15" x 6" with 3.5" backspacing. The rear were 15" x 8" with 4.5" backspacing. My tires were B.F. Goodrich 215/70-15 BW and 255/60-15 TA's. I have the Hotchkis sport leaf springs too but I paid $460 from Summit Racing.
