C4 Vette wheels on 69'Camaro=> rubbing


I installed 9,5 x 17 wheels with 255/45 at the rear of my 69' Camaro.

The distance between tire and inner wheel housing is approx. 1" (backspacing of the wheels with spacers is 5,5").

But if the car is in a bad position the tire scrub the inner wall (driver side more than passenger side).

I don't know why because in the normal stand there's a lot of space.

I think nothing was done at the rear suspension for the last 36 years=> Could this be the problem?

69`Camaro, 92`LT 1 / 94' BW-6 speed, shorty headers+Flowmaster, Vette wheels, Eibach/hotchkis springs, koni shocks, Nova rear, Corvette 13" front brake system
