I got the go ahead on a new set of rims and tires for my 68 camaro from the wife last night. Right now I am currently running 275-60-15's on a 8.5 inch rim with 4 inches of backspacing. Due to the way my exhuast comes out the back I can only go to 4.5 inch backspacing. What I need to know is what is the over height of the rim and tire combo for different sized tires on 17 inch rims. I am not sure what kind of rim yet but I will need to fill the wheel well as much as I can so it doesn't look like a 4x4. I could drop the rear one inch if I have to, but I run SSM lift bars and they sit really low. So basically I need the height of different mounted tire sizes on 17 rims from the ground up to the top of the tire.
