It would be nice to have one thread with a whole lot of different pictures of cars on this site to help people when choosing what wheels they would decide to buy.

1. post the pic
2. Wheel brand
3. Wheel size & tire size
4. Backspacing
5. Any clearance issues

Thank you, not only the rear tire size I'm considering, but the same color as mine, looks like you took a photo of my car, happy to see someone still wears 15's.
Beautiful car.

Post up your wheel & tire spec's along with a picture!

1968 Camaro SS



1)Photos







2) Wheel Brand
American Racing AR105 Torq Thrust M - painted gloss black





3) Size

Wheel size: 17x8

Tire size: Sumitomo HTRZ II (235/45/17 , 275/40/17)



4) Backspacing/Offset

Backspacing: 4.5
Offset: 0mm


5) No clearance issue or rubbing



P.S: I'm currently looking for new set of tires Nitto/BFG, planning to also get new spring leafs with a 1.5" drop.



Question: from the looks of the photos, will I have issues going with 245/45/17 upfront? I prefer wider wheels (just for looks - street driven)

Other option is to stick with 235/45 and add wheel spacers upfront? any brand preference including how many mm?


Thank you

Looks great, do you have any kind of a drop on the front in these pictures?

Kinda old school here. 15x7 ralleys all around with 215/65r15 BFG front & 245/60r15 BFG rears. 1 coil removed on front & 1" lowering blocks rear. Everything else stock. No rubbing issues at all. Seems like wheel selections have passed me by 17"s seem to be pretty popular choice.

This tells me that black will never go out of style. Your 1968 car doesn't look old, it's really beautiful.

When I get some extra cash to spend on wheels I am going to the OEM style 15x7 4.25 bs rally wheels 215/60/15 255/60/15.

JCKD, how much drop did you do on the Hotchkis TVS? I just finished installing a 2” front / 1.5” rear multi-leaf drop TVS. Stock control arms, hotchkis shocks. I really like the stance on yours. Beautiful car.
