18 inch wheelsi

I have a 72 chevelle and am thinking about putting a 18 inch wheels on it. So far I have found out that an 18x10 in the rear with 5.5 bs with a 305 40 or 35 will work but not sure about the front considering it has 2 inch drop spindles and I don't want to go any wider than 18x8. So anyone have any suggestions for the front as far as backspace and tire size?... the wheels I'm looking at are the boss 338

Doing other then stock size rims screws up the looks bad IMHO,but beside that it also screws up the ride bad as well,cus your removing part of the designed in spring in tire,plus tire wall shape and give is part of sub "A" arm design as well/18in. don't flex for crap=camber goes wrong for any rim size other then stock,this is also ture for rim off set on most new rims off and makes tire srub.
Don't be *****ing about my car don't drive good cus it's old=BS-you well of screwed it up with pour rim & tire size.
Just so ya know how it works before ya blow $ on wrong looking rims and tires

18 inch wheels

Yes that's very true I also have to take in consideration of the suspension and I will definitely do a lot of research on this before I go blow a crap load on some wheels that I'm gonna regret. But for now ill be putting some new rubber on my rally wheels so that means I got some rubber 2 burn before I do so ...
