    Actually, 15x10's need a 7.5" backspace. Here's what 15x10 (7.5" BS) with 275/50/15 MT Drag Radials and 15x3.5 with 165R15 tires looks like on stock suspensioned LS1 car.

    15x8's would need 5.5" backspace
    15x10's use 7.5" backspace...

    Hope this helps.

    The 7.5 bs works well for Trans Am/Firebird. The 6.5 works well for the camaro due to the slimmer body design so the tires don't look like they stick out so much.

    That is incorrect. My picture above is very clear in how a 7.5" backspace fits a Camaro properly. If I had one less inch of backspace, the wheel would be OUT 1" farther than it is, which means it would cause the tires to rub the fenderlips. See pic below.



    I'd like to see pictures of those on a Camaro. Your theory is 180 degrees backwards.

    MORE backspace means the rims are in farther.
    A wheel tucked in farther would be of benefit to a "slimmer" Camaro, not a wider Pontiac F body.

    10" wheel with 6.5" backspace means that they WILL rub and/or stick out on a Camaro.

    Thanks for the info/pic, to make thing's worst I have a trans am. So these would stick in about an inch from the 1/4.

    How do you want to sell the wheel's with the rear tire's or without? I probaly wouldn't be able to fit a 325/50/15 with that backspace would I? What about the 275/50/15 aren't those for the 8"-9" wheel's any problems with that size on the 10"? Give me a price Im in Cali so they will need to be shipped? Any pics?

    Do you have any pics of the wheels ssmaro?

    So they should work for a TA? Is it common for someone with a pontiac fbody to go with a 7.5' or do they usually go with a 6.5"? I wouldn't want them to stick out to much either and rub on the 1/4.

    Thanks for the info, I learned something today. Now I know how the backspacing work's, less is more.

    Relax man, I typed it backwards. You are correct. If you aren't looking to buy items, it wouldn't hurt to stay out of this. Thanks for correcting me.

    They come with the rear tires 275's MT ET street drag radial which can be used for a little while, just not good for drag racing. Shipping will be $100 insured to you total. I'll get close up pics of tread soon. Thx.

    No problem...Just didn't want to see the guy buy the wrong wheels. After all, we are all supposed to be here to help each other out. I didn't mean to be offensive. If I was, I apologize.

    Good Luck with the sale.

    FWIW, I love the look of my ProStars...Lots of grinding to make them fit, but well worth it.
