The standard answer "biggest wheel and tire combo that fits is 275 on a 9.5 wheel". You didn't say what diameter wheel so I'll guess 17 or 18s. Some guys have squeazed on up to 295/35-18s on 10 wide wheels but that takes a lot of nerve and patience. To get those to fit you need to roll lips and smash the inner wheel house in. Before you attempt anything that big keep in mind that 275s on 9.5s rub on some cars. Depends on the car and the condition of the car as well as what body panels if any have been changed. Do a search this is constantly discussed.

mitchrac ... I am just another one of the many Camaro purists out here ... This is my opinion (and I am sure shared by others) ... There is nothing more beautiful than an ALL original Camaro ... It also keeps the value of the car up ... Anyways ... Just my opinion ... Find some stock wheels ... mount some nice steel belted radials (ooops not stock) ... But much better handling and they provide a stock appearance ... For what it's worth ... Just an opinion ...
