Yes, 69's have a little more room than a 68, and my car was lowered with 3"drop Hotchkis leafs, and I autocrossed it with no rubbing.'68 and '69 have different wheel wells in addition my car is lowered at least 2" in the rear. I put the wheel on the car but couldn't let it down because it stuck out so much. The backspace on that wheel was 4.75 and the US Mags are 5.25 but that's only .5" difference and the wheel stuck out way more than .5". In addition the US Mags are 18x9.5 where the Chevelle wheels are 18x9 so I would probably be in the same boat even though they with the extra backspacing.
You are correct, with the right offset it would work but I would have to pay to have a custom wheel made with the right offset. That's out of my budget so I have to stick with pre-fabbed widths and offset.
But yes, a custom offset gets pricey for sure.
Maybe your rear end has been changed to a non Camaro one thats a little longer than stock pushing the wheel out more ?
my car when it was on 275 18"
