I have a 1969 Camaro and I'm about to get wheels. I was thinking about going with 17X8 Torq Thrust II wheels and 245/45/17 tires all the way around. I have front disc brakes and will be getting rear discs in the future. Me question is whether or not the standard 4.75 backspacing will work all the way around the car. Will the rear fit both before and after I get my discs? I know someone on this board has the 17X8 with 4.5 backspacing but I don't want to have to pay the extra money and wait a few months for custom backspacing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is it a good idea to go with the same size wheels and tires all the wat around? I figured that way I could rotate them. With this have a negative/positive effect on hadling?

Yes those sizes will work.

It's up to you on same front and rear. Since you can fit a larger one in the rear, that's what I did. It also helps when trying to get traction.
