I bought a set of 15x8 Ralley's with a 4.5" off set. I would like to know if anyone has a similar set-up and what size tires are you running. I want to keep a stock apperance as far as the tires sticking out of the finder wells. please help

If it helps you:
I have 15x7 with 4.5" offset on front and 235/60/15 tires. They barely tuck under outer lip and dont rub on turn in. I only have a bit of clearence from the rear outer part of the tire hitting the rear inner fender on turn in. With the same size tire in front, you could have problems there and with the inner tire rubbing the frame and steering components. The rears should do well depending on tire size.
I have 15x8's with a 4" offset in back with 245/60/15 tires. The lip is just about flush with the outer tire but I have no rub with standard shocks and stock suspension. You can click this link for a photo if you like. Good Luck!

Measuring mine 15X8 ralleys (corvette i think) they measure 3 5/8 inside the lip and 4" on top of it.

I run 245/60/15 radial t-a (goodrich)and they fit good. I had to roll the lip under to keep them from chafing

And that's on real dead rear springs.

John
any ideas what those ralleys are from?

First of all, Mike, that's one beautiful RS. I hope only to come close someday!

As for Rally Wheels, my understanding is that all Camaros only came with 14" diameter available, and that Corvettes had 15". The standard offset of the 15x8 is 4". The 4 1/2" is available aftermarket.
