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!

"Another reason of why this site and the people that participate in it are great. I have been in need of a good running engine for the fleetline and thanks to Patgizz I now have one. He was kind enough to give a nice 250 I6 motor. Thanks again Pat!!!"
