i want to run a 67 camaro with factory rallye rims (15s).
keeping the spring location , rear wheel wells and wheel openings stock , but moving the rear shocks inboard of the springs and frame rail , what is the widest rallye rim / tire combo (radial street)i can put on this car ? will a 15x8 rallye fit ? can i get the rim widenened ? if so , how much ? what about backspacing ?
i do not want the tires to go past the quarters .
this is a street car with a 454 and a 4-speed .
any info would be appreciated .
thank you

You can go with the 15X8 on the rear only with a 4.5" to 5" backspace without rubbing. Trying to fit them up front will be a tough. For tire size you can go with a 255/60/15. You may be able to fit larger tires but I cannot personally say they will work. My 67 has 15 X 8's with a 4" backspace, running 245/60/15's. I have a slight rub on the outer lip. Pics in my sig.

15x8 5 inch b.s works perfect with stock rear end

factory 15x8 vette,chevvel/monte carlo etc. type wheels were aprox 4 inch backspace.

i had the factory rims on,and also had the wheelwell lip gouge the tires with 245/60r15,

I bought wheel vintiques 15x8 5 inch b.s from
Summitracing.com,and they worked great with 255/60r15 Comp ta's

I sold my Camaro,hope the current owner drives it.

I run stock Monte Carlo rally's (15x7) on the back of my 67 with 255/60/15 tires. Lowered 2 inches. No rubbing but very close!
