Do your thing bro it will look great. Just make sure you fill up the front wheel well by lowering it more or whatever.

I have'nt done it on a Camaro but, I did do it on a '67 Vette roadster and my mother-in-laws PT Cruiser. Looked pretty cool.

A member here with a '69 is running Boyd Magnetos with 17x8 (4.75 backspace) front and 18x9 (5.25 backspace) rear. I believe the tire sizes are 245/45-17 front and 275/40-18 rear. Try this link http://members.aol.com/GETYOPAPION/69LS1.html
Maybe he will see this and chime in. Good Luck - Jack

thanks, I have lowered the front 2" and rear 1.5", so I should fill the wheel wells nicely.
