Rally Wheel & Tire Fitment Question on a 1969?

I'm new, so I apologize if this is an age old topic.

I am looking to put Rally Wheels on my 69 Camaro.

One choice is 15x7x4.25 backspace wheels on all 4 corners with 235/60r15 tires

Other choice is 15x7x4.25 backspace front & 15x8x4.50 backspace rear wheels with 225/60r15 front & 245/60r15 rear tires.

I think I would prefer the staggered look but want to be absolutely certain the rears would be completely tucked inside the rear fenders.

Any experience and/or photos would be very appreciated . . .and thanks

On the factory 15x7 rally wheel, you can fit 245-60R-15 tires on all 4 corners. On the rear they fit fine. On the front you need to ever so slightly bend the edge of the front fender extension with pliers to make them clear when turning the wheel. Sounds bad but it is easy to do/reverse later if desired. No paint damage from my experience and the change is not noticeable.



I also have a staggered setup with Cragar SS rims. Really like the way those came out.



You can see a few more pix in my Garage Section of this web site.

-Mark.
