I Have 79 Z28 I had 16in and went to 17 in I,m Was running the 16 in wheels I used 4.5in back spacing both frount and rear. than I went to dropped spindles I switched to a 5.5 offset in the frount with no rubbing or cutting. I swiched to a different back spacing because I thought it might rub the outer wheel well .My new rims are 17 in both Frount and rear are 5.5in back spacing both rims fit real good I would not go with any more back spacing either frount or rear. The rear unless you are going to minni tub the back half or remove the seat belt indentation in the rear wheel well . In the frount the off set is maxed out . I had to use tape weights on the frount because other weights would hit the tie rod ends .My rims are 17X9 rear 17 x8 frount with 245 50 17 g force and rear 275 40 17 gforce tire. This should get you close on a second generation camaro .
