Do you think 17x9.5 with 275x40x17 would fit in the front of a 67 camaro it has 6.7 inch backspacing or is 5 inch backspacing the max? Thanks Matt

I don't think it will fit. With 4.5 inches backspacing the biggest I have heard of fitting are 235s on a '67. I don't think that rim will even fit unless it has lots of offset. 5'' backspacing is about maximum from all that I know. You should take the car to an NTB or something, their guys measure tires all day and would better be able to help you fit the biggest meats under there.

The only way that will fit is if you notch the frame rails, or get a wayne due front clip. sorry.
