I hope this is the right section. Where is the best place to get these for my 67 Camaro? I'm looking at a 17x8 in the front, and a 18x9 in the rear. Anyone have an idea which place me best/cheapest, and best for ordering?
Thanks in advance everyone.

If you don't have a local tire shop that is willing to get them for you (showing up in your '67 when shopping for them it is the key to unlocking "good guy" deals) then go to www.google.com and type in "Boyd Cottington Smoothie" ans start looking for the best price, keep shipping in mind...

I have 17X8's and 17X10's. I bought them directly from Boyd's during their monthly Sale/Open House about 9 months ago, paid $200ea. ($800 total).

Ok thanks for the info guys. How did you get 10 inch rims to fit under your car?

Thanks
Mike

The same tire (275/40) on a 9.5" rim grows only a small amount when mounted on a 10" rim. 9.5" is very common for 1st gen f-bodies.

I was just about to order the rims, but if I can fit 10 inch rims, then I may want to do that, but I would like to hear others on what they thought about a 10 inch for a 67?

Thanks everyone
Mike

It cool to see you pushing the limit. How about a shot from the rear down the side showing how far the tire sticks out. What back spacing on those 10" wheels OHC? Have you ever loaded 4 people in that bird and gone for a cruise? Any rubbing?

Don't want to step of Hot OHC's toes, but here is a post that shows the pics you are looking for.
His car is what has me saving for these rims for my 67 Camaro.

Thanks Virgil,
5.75 back spacing... Needs the top half added to this one though.

Stick OUT!! please, this is no pro-street

It's tuff to photgraph but hope these will help you see the tries remain under the fenderwell.

I plan on lowering the rear a little more, still kinda high.

No I have not had 4 adults in the car, the back seat is kinda worhtless imo. I am 6'5" and I also have a roll bar.

That's what I wanted to see, what did you use to trim the fender lip?

Off topic but kudos on the I6, you just don't see it every day...
