i just want to know for sure that when i get me 15x8 vette rallies and BF Goodrich T/A's 275/60/15's that they will fit under the rear on my el camino without rubbing ? Besides maybe rolling the fender lip ??

And what wheel and tire do you recommend for the front ???? i want the drag and street car tilt

those should work my vette rallys are 4in back space and i have plenty of clearance between the rim and frame rail so and extra 1\4 (4.25) back spacing shouldnt hurt

kmassn, could we get a pic of your six cylinder? I have not seen one in a 5th gen, That would be cool. Lots of torque. I had a 6 in a Nova that would burn the tires in low woth a powerglide.

I am running 14x8 rims on the front of my 84 with 3.5" bs. 245/60/14's with no rub. 255/60/15 on the rear. I like the look. Vintage slot mags.

They may fit your cruck, but I cannot mount 15x8 vette wheels on my 64 caminos. I need a 5 inch bs. I have Weld aluminum wheels with 255r70's on rear and 225r65's up front. Nice rake, helped tone down my rear ratio for better mpg. Can be viewed in my garage photos.:secret:
