Tire Tricky question

Hi eveybody,

I really need help from technician and expert here at Hotrodders

I have few question:

First, I want to know something! I have a chevy Camaro Z-28 1980, I want to put the larger tire and rims as possible without cut my inner fender or move my leafspring.

Does somebody know what is the larger rims (and backspacing) I can put on the rear wheels, What is the bigger tire, d.O.T, like michey thompson et street or Hoosier quick time (for the street) I can put without hitting the inner fenders wheels of my car.

My second question is, if I put 8 inch wheels with 4.5 Backspacing, can I put larger tire as ET street 28 X 12.5 X 15 on my car...What is the best setup to have the maximum traction. (my brother want to sells me this rims ( Welds wheels 90 series, 8 inch with 4.5 backspacing)

Can I put tire with 29 inch tall on this camaro without having trouble...

I really need help, this camaro have a 460 CI with 13:1 CR, I want to stick on the road and I really doesn't want to cut the rear end.....

Can I put 9 inch rims, 10 inch, or it's really to big for me!

I'm new here, so I really need experienced people here to help me.

thanks in advance.

what do you really need...

Go to a reputable large tire shop and they will look in their book and tell you what you can or can't run.
