Need help in wheel offset and backspacing
I bought a 72 camaro RS, and it had 18 inch wheels in the front with 235/40 tires.
I put new american racing torque thrust wheels instead, 17 by 8 in the front and back, 245/45 tires.
The problem is that the front tires rub,the car seems to have lowering springs because it is sitting very low.
I decided to change them to 17" by 7 with 235/45 tires for the front wheels, hoping to solve the rubbing problem, however the tires still rub.
I don't know what specs the wheel store used for the wheels.
any ideas about the wheel offset i need to have in order to solve the rubbing problem, I appreciate it guys..
