What size wheels and tires?

I have a 67 Camaro, I would like to go with some 16" American Racing Trakstar S wheels. I want to go as wide as possible in the rear, but stay within the wheel wells. I have Global West tubular A-Arms up front with the QA1 coil over setup. What size wheels and tires, backspacing ...etc??

Thanks!

Re: What size wheels and tires?

the widest you can go in ther rear in 275 if you get the bs right
if you get a 9.5" wide rim with 5.5" bs thats about normal (rear)
and 8" wide rimewith 4.75" of bs (front)
but every car varies and if you have disc brakes it changes again

but you can not get 275s for a 16" rim, i recomend you step up to 17"
there are tons more tire choices for 17" rims than there are for 16" rims
