Just got my stepson a bone stock, 68 Camaro. I want to put a set of wheels & tires on the car without making any fender/shock modifications. I have already seen several comments concerning this subject and have put together the following combination for your comments.
The car has a 327 engine with a monoleaf rear suspension. To me, the car sets a little low.
I would like to go for the "Full Wheel Well" look without any modifications (i.e. air shocks, lip rolling, etc).
Here's my thoughts - tell me what you think:
Centerline Convo Pros:
15x6 - 3 3/8" Back Space with 205/60R-15
15x7 - 3 3/8" Back Space with 215/60R-15
15x8.5 - 5" Back Space with 255/60R-15
15x8.5 - 5" Back space with 245/60R-15

Weld Racing Draglite:
15x6 - 3 1/2" Back Space with 205/60R-15
15x6 - 3 1/2" Back Space with 215/60R-15
15x8 - 4.5" Back Space with 255/60R-15
15x8 - 4.5" Back space with 245/60R-15
I may have to get the wheels & tires through mail order, so I would liket to get it right the first time.
What do you guys think? Is this even an up-to-date setup for a first gen Camaro? I've been out of the business for a while.
