I have a 69 Camaro with Drum brakes all around. I found some Draglite rims i want to put on it. 15+8 in the rear and 15+6 in front. The back spacing for both is 3.5 and the bolt pattern is 5+4.75/5. Would this work? Thanks in advance

Not on the rear. Not enough backspacing to get any decent sized tire inside the fenderwell. If you wanted to run air shocks and have the rear of the car way up in the air it might work.

A 15X8" wheel on the rear needs about 4.75" to be centered for a larger tire, but 4.5" to 5" will work in many cases. 3.5" of b.s. is simply not enough.

Jody,

What company would you recommend to get the 18 by 9's and 18 by 8's with the backspacing you recommended in another post? [img]graemlins/hurray.gif[/img] 67 RS/SS Convertible Project

Many offer them, but it depends on what you like and what your budget is.
