Question

I am wanting to get new rallye rims and dont no whether to go with 15x7 with 4"bs or 4.5" bs. I would like to run a 235/60/r15 on front and tuck under fender(closer to engine). I have lowered my car with Hotchkis front and rear springs, and completely rebuilt my front-end.

I just spoke with a tech at wheel vintiques about this at he acted like I was weird to ask about a 15x7 with 4.5" bs and he also told me that a 15x7 with 4" backspacing was stock from Chevrolet. I thought I had read that 4.5" bs was standard on the 15x7 rallye rim. What is correct and will a 15x7 with 4.5 work better for my situation?

Thanks!

I have 15x7's with a 4" offset all 4 corners. they have 3 different codes on them 1 from a Z/28 2 from a chevelle and I don't recall what the 3rd was from... I am fairly sure 4" is the factory offset.

If your front end is setup correctly and at the stock height the 235's should fit. I think with a 4.5" offset in the front the tires would rub on the inner fender when turning...
