I have a 67 camaro and wanted to put some new draglites on the car. I was thinking of going with a 15x8 rim with 4.5" backspacing and a 275/60/15 BFG drag radial. Do you think these will fit?

Thats about the biggest that will fit.Measure twice , buy once. I used a heavy peice of cardboard and laied everything out, then checked the fit. the biggest I can go in a 15" wheel was 10.5 x 28<275/60>.

I'm thinking you may have to go to a 5" back space for the 275's.
