Hi guys... I'd like to know your experience with wheels/tires combinations for a 69 Camaro (convertible)... ideally I'd like a set of 15x7 or 15x8 inch Torq Thrust D's, but I'm slightly lost when it comes down to choosing the right offset/backspacing. Nothing too fat that sticks out too far, but not to skiny either... are there any photos/threads already on this that you can share?

Also, my front suspension is a bit low, so I want to make sure that it doesn't scrub on the fenders, etc.

I know a lot of it is a matter of opinion/taste and trying them out until you find the right one, but I live in Paraguay, so it's not like I can drive into a local dealer and try them out... I have to order from the US and have them shipped (expensive), so I want to get it right the first time!! hahahahaha

Please tell me what you have (tire sizes too) and include some photos if possible... thanks!
