I have a 1967 Camaro rs with a 327. I am running BFG Radial T/A's on factory orig. 14" rallys. Front tires are P215/70/14 @ 25.9" and the rear P225/70/14 @ 26.4". I want to go with 17" American Torque Thrust ll's on BFG T/A KD's. I like the look of the same width rim and tire size on all four if possible. My current setup fills the wells real nice with no problems. Given the above info, are there any tire and wheel guys out there that can give me the right rim widths and tire size I should go with. I dont have a problem with 7's in the front and 8's on the rear and different height rubber. Can you suggest what might work best for me? Thanks, Dan.

Use the search feature as this has been discussed at length several times. But basically I believe you will find Wheels: rears: 17 X 9.5 w/ 5.5 backspace and fronts: 17 X 8 w/ 4.75 or 5.0 backspace. Tires: rears: 275 or 255 /40-17 and fronts: 225 or 235 /40 or 45-17

On my '69, I've got 17x8 with 4-3/4 backspacing at all four corners. I put 245/45/17 on them. I could have gone bigger but I wanted to be able to rotate from front to back.
