I am looking to run 15x4 front and rear wheel I'm not sure yet I have a 68 Camaro
multi leaf springs in rear in stock location
I'm going to run 10.5 slicks what is a good
rim width/backspace and also tire height.
Thanks guys.

15x8-41/2 backspacing 275/60 15 looks nice, Hope this helps.

You can get a 15X10 under it but it will need to be a 5 by 5. Thats what it is called but it is realy a 4 7/8 BY 5 1/8 4-7/8 IS ON THE INSIDE. I like the 8" myself thats what I run on my 69 when i am not showing the car.

a 15x8.5 w/ 4.5" b/s is the biggest that will fit with out mods. on "most" 67-68 Camaros. a 275/60/15 is max tire on "most" also. so as far as a 10.50 slick goes...its gonna be tight...your wheel well should be 28.5 front to back, and 11" from the lip to the inner wheel well. not all 28x10.50 slicks are made the carefull.
