David,

make a template from a tire mounted on a wheel and use it to determine the correct backspacing. There have been lots of articles in CHP and Super Chevy on how to do this.

Hey David. On my 67 Camaro I have 17" wheels. I dont know if the fender clearances would be the same but I'll give you my info anyway. Front..17"x8" with 4.5"bs and 255/40/zr17's. Rear... 17"x9.5" with 5.5"bs and 275/40/zr17's. The car is lowered 2" in front and back and I have NO rubbing problems.
