What should I look for when purchasing used rally wheels.
Date codes don't matter too much to me, I want 15x8 or 15x7's

I am hoping to find some at Carlisle.

I have bought new brakes

And downloaded the template from

Do you think they will fit? The template say they need 7.02 from the center to clear.

i would do a search in the wheel and tires section. this subject has been beat to death with all the different choices of wheels, tires, brakes and suspension set ups out there. search for things like backspacing, tire size, stance, wheel size, baer disc brakes. tons of info just gotta sit down and look thru it and decide what you need, want, and can afford.

i'm sure some guys with baer brakes will chime in with their set ups.

good luck!!

15 x 7 4.25 backspace from a 70's monte carlo will fit. I needed a 7/32" wheel spacer to make them clear using 12" pbr caliper/rotors. (and a 1/8" off the corner of the caliper.) -Dan

Do a search on here for "tire". You'll find a ton of stuff. Most say 255 60 15 is biggest without rubbing. I looked at a Cortez Silver 69 Z at Carlisle today with this size trie, and it looked "right". Not as good as "The Mule", but...

I've got 265\50R15 BFGs on 15x8 vette ralleys (front), and 295/50R15 BFGs on a 15x10 Wheelvintique (rear with 6" offest). Fronts are tight and will rub if your camaro sits too low - my 69 sits up a bit (2-3") between top of the tire and bottom of fender. Thr rears will not work unless you move the rear shocks inboard - Comp Enginnering makes a kit. I built mine. good luck!!
