Will 15x8 Rally with 235/60/15 BFG Radial T/A fit on front of 1969 Camaro? I was wondering if anyone has this wheel tire set up on the front of their Camaro and if so mind sharing specifics like backspacing and some photographs?

Thank you

I had essentially that configuration on my Z28 back in the 70's (F60-15 TA's on Corvette 8" wheels).   They scrubbed pretty badly on hard turns or especially turns with bumps; the tire caught on one of my wheel well trims during one such turn/bump and bent it... :(
I replaced the bolts holding the inner wheel well to the fender with round head allens, and still they scrubbed.. so I removed them and went back to 7" Z wheels.

PS.  But they looked 'great' if you aren't going to actually drive your car!!    :)
