Unhappy

Well guys, I have been looking for tires and wheels for 2 weeks. I have called many wheel manufactures and they all say the same thing 4-6 weeks on the wheels
17x8 with BS 4.75
17x9 with BS 5.5
Of course that is a custom offset and they want like 45 to 75$ more per wheel
I think now I will go with 17x8 on all for caners would a 4.75 or .5 work? This is going on a 67. It has front disk that are factory and will put the LS1 In the back.
So what I am asking is will 17x8 work on the brakes and is this BS good.(C5 or LS1)
Still looking for the best price any help would be great and I have been looking at all the threads here great stuff….

1967 SS (496) BBC FiTech EFI
1972 454 Fitech EFI (Baldwin motion clone)
1978 Trans am Gold SE W72 (461)

Try Value Tire Center 1 - 800-974-8585. Bought AR Hopsters at an unbeatable price from them. I bought 17 x8 with 4.75 BS front and 17x9.5" with 5.5 BS for rear. Tight fit.

Vintage Wheel Works. They usually can ship custom offsets in less than 2-3 days.
