Weld Draglite backspacing for 68 camaro???

Hey guys. I have a friend that has a 68 camaro with a stock 10 bolt. He wants to get a set of Weld Draglites for his car. He has some Crager Street stars on the back now(not sure of the size), and they stick out alittle far and rub the fender.

What will fit? 7 inch or 8 inch, and what back spacing for the back ones without doing any fender work??

Thanks
Michael

A weld wheel with a 4.5" backspacing will fit with a 275 60 tire. It will be close,But it does fit.

Thanks Guys. Will a 8 inch rim with 4.5 backspacing not stick out and rub the fender? Or would a 7 inch be better?

Thanks,
Michael

These are 285's but yours will be close (less than a 1/4" difference)
