I'm running Baer disc brakes with 1967 F-body lowered 2-3 inches. 245/40/18on 18x8 wheels. Peopleon this site seem to run 5.25 BS for this tire/wheelcombo but int eh Camaro Performers magazine almost all those Camaros were running 4.5 BS with 18x8 rim and 245/40.18 tire??

Whats my best bet?? I'd prefer as minimum of a BS as possible but with very little rubbing issues as well since the car is lowerd 2-3 inches. =Chris

I'm running 5" bs with 245/45/18's in front and 5.25" with 255/55/18 in the rear. I have some rubbing on ls inner fender lip and lots of clearance on the other side. The rearend is not completely centered which isn't unusal, I've been told. If your car is already lowered be careful. I can send pics of my stock front height and 1" lowered rear. 18's really fill the fenders without sacrificing ground clearance.
