    With a 15x8 wheel I think you would need 5.5' Backspacing or it will stick out past the fenders quite a bit..

    I agree, I had 15X8 on my camaro with a 5" backspace and they set right flush with the fender.
    Ashes to ashes and dust to dust, if it wasn't for fords our tools would rust

    The weld draglites and prostars will require some brake grinding...unless you have aftermarket brakes. And tosonfirm what was said above, the proper backspacing for and 8" wheel would be 5.5"

    I bought a set of weld wheels for my 2002 camaro with a 5.5 in backspacing and they look and fit really good, but just sold them and got a weld wheel with a 6.0in backspacing and It fits even better the ones with the 5.5in backspacing stuck out about a 1/2 inch
