1967 Camaro tires

Hi guys
I have a chance to buy some tires and rims for my 1967 Camaro but I need your help. The size of the tires are, back 275-60-15 on 8" rims with 4 1/2 back space. Front is 235-70-15 with 4 1/2 back space. Do you think I will have trouble with the tires fitting on the front? Thanks

It all depends on how low or how you have your front end sitting.

I have done no modifications to the front end. It is just stock.

You might want to check the Discount Tire website,you can get height and width measurements there,in your case I would run a 205/70/15 on the front.

I decided last night to pass on the tires and rims I have a chance to buy. I have a set of Torq-Thrust D rims that are 15X7 and 15X6 that I am going to use. I am placing 275-60-15 on the back. And like you said, and I agree 205X70-15 on front. Thanks for the reply.

On my 67 camaro the bigest tire wheel combo i could go with was,
P205/65r/15 on the front with a 15x6 with a 3 1/2 backspacing. Any bigger and they rubbed my fenders when i turned the wheels but that might all change when i do my suspension. My springs are pretty soft there are pics in my gallery and one for my avatar you can see how it sits.
And mine has stock rear never been cut on and i went with a 15x8 4 1/2 back space with 255/60/15 tires on there.any bigger and they rub.
