I have a 1967 Convertible Camaro

and am running P23560R15's all the way around on 7" rims w/ 4" backspace. I am looking to keep the 235's on the front, but struggling with what tire to put on the back. My options:

1.Keep the 7" rims and add 255's

2.Buy 8" rims w/ a 4" backspace and add 255's

3.Buy 8" rims w/ 4.5" backspace and add 255's

4.Buy 8" rims w/ 4.5" backspace and add 275's

any advise or pics showing your layout would be greatly appreciated.

You can safely run a 255 on a 7 inch rim, I've got a similar combo on mine. 235/60/15 front and 255/60/15 rear, mounted on 15X7 Ralleyes......KZ
