Thanks curtis.

I was looking at your camaro and I was wondering...

How'd you make the 18x10 fit in the rear of yours?

WOW.. you need to use the search function... there are a million posts on that sublect... the most used way is the minitub... with or without changes to the rear suspension..

it would seem the new upcomming fad is widening the fenders check the post "fat bottom camaros"

I did use the forum search and I've been looking on other forums. I was asking him about his specific set up.

I was just seeing if I can fit a 18x10 without a mintub on a 1967. As I was SEARCHING and looking through Spiffav8 post and mod list. I dont think he has a mini-tub job.

Dan,

18x8 and 18x9's. 19's are tough due to the fact that 19's are not available in a 9" wide hoop in the wheels you were interested in unless we narrow it for you.

your correct dan he doesent have minitubs, the fender are just rolled and the b.s must be spot on, he was also run a 285 tire.

justin,

do you think there would be a problem with a 18x10 in the rear like how Curtis had his?

I'm not going against your recommendation of 18x9 in the rear. I'm just trying to fit the widest rear wheel possible.

Also what rear suspension modification do you guys recommend without spending all that money on a 4-link set up?

I was thinking around a 3'' drop in the rear and a 2'' in the front?

-Dan

How did you fit those 10" wheels on the back without minitubs?
