I have a set of 15X8 rally wheels off of a vette and would like to put 225 65 R15 on the fornt and 245 60 R15 on the back of a 1968 camaro. I need to know if they will fit and not rub. I am not sure of BS it may be 4.5 to 4.75 if i did it correct. ANy help would be great. Thanks

I used to run a 255/60/15 on the rear of my 67 with no problems. The front sounds like you should have no problems either.....

Anyone else?

as long as the back spacing isn't way off, you'll be fine. i'm running 215 60 15 on front and 275 60 15 drag radials on back, and no clearance issues. they are close though.
i ran a 245 60 15 for awhile with no issues at all. heck for that matter, years ago on my first 68, i ran 265 50-15 all the way around on 15-8 rallyes, and occasionally had a slight rub up front but rarely.
you should be good to go
