I have a '68 with front (2" drop) and rear (1.5" drop) Hotchkis springs. Its time to go tire/wheel shopping. Any one out there with the same set up? What wheel/tire combos fit?
I would like to get as wide/tall as possible w/o any rubbing issues. I am looking at 15x7's with 245/60/R15's (26.6") or possibly 255/60/R15 (27.1") on the rear and 225/60/R15's (25.6") on the front. Thanks for the help.

My 67 is on Pro-tour.com..the link is in the above post..listed in 67 camaros under Tom McGinnity.. I have 17's with the same Hotchkis front springs..At lock to lock on the steering it does rub but only barely enough to remove some frame paint..If I hit a double dip, like on the highway at speed over an underpass and hit to consecutive bridge joints then it will bounce down just enough to touch the top of the tire to the inner fenderwell right next to the wheel well moulding..none of the issues concern me but thought you should know..

Lets talk 67 PaceCar specifics!Looking to compare Festival POP's
