need Wheel help.. with narrowed rear end

I have a 67 Camaro with a narrowed Dana 60 that is 48 inches wide hub-hub. I want to use a 15x10 wheel and was wondering if any of you had this same setup and what did you use for tire and what wheels with what backspacing do you have? My car's rear is tubbed. Thanks!!!

Re: need Wheel help.. with narrowed rear end

I also have a 67 SS with a narrowed Dana 60 and tubbed. I used 15x10 weld pro star with a 3.5 back spacing, and 325/50R15 BFG drag Radials and installed a 3.5 inch billet spacer, this aligned the front and rear tires nicely and gives the car a nice stance. if you're interested in the spacers let me know and I'll try and find the manufacturer for ya.

Use a straight edge at wheel mounting area and measure in to tub (closest point) and then measure out from inner to wheelwell lip (closest point). This will give you a close idea to max BS and max width, then you'll need to allow for tire flex and growth.

Make a cardboard cutout and see how it fits in all positions (don't forget suspension travel). That should give you an idea of tire size and wheel size. Good luck !
