The bolt pattern is fine, plus I think the fronts are fine, but that 8 inch backspacing is pretty huge. Typical backspacing for our Camaros is around 4.5 inches.

Yeah...no way those suckers will fit. I am running 15x8's with 4.5 bs on 275/50/15's. They just barley clear. The fronts will work great though.

You can fit a 15X10 under a '69, but it requires a 5" B/S and rolled fender lip and some hammer surgery on the inner wheel well. After all that a 295 tire will fit....barely

I'm not sure how a 15X10 would clear that way. We did a 15X8" with 5" b.s. and BARELY cleared even with a rolled fender lip and a 275/60 tire. Not sure how you can bring the wheel 2" further out and get it under the fender. Air shocks maybe.
