View Full Version : Wheel question with DSE Minitub

02-23-2005, 08:54 AM
I am minitubbing my 67 Camaro convertible and would really like to know if there is anyone else out there who has minitubbed a 67 and used the stock rearend? What dimensions did you use on the rears? Looking for some suggestions on rims. Right now I have been told to go with a 11 inch rim and around 6.5 - 7 inches of backspacing? Any help?

i would go a bit less back space on a 11 inch rim, something between 5.5 and 6, i like 6.5 to 7 on a 12 inch rim, as 6 is too deep for me, but you can go whatevr bs you want, you will just have to shorten rearend to accomadate

Did you do minitub your car? I would really like to see what someone put on in the same situation.
If I dont want to narrow the rearend $ what would you suggest?

yes i have mini tubbed my car, but do not have rims yet.
if you want to keep stock width rear end, you are gonna be around 7 in bs, roadrage david used 7 in bs on his 68 with stock width rearend and 17x11's, 18's would be same, but i would measure you car and use budniks or intros wheel fitment guide

Call Kyle at DSE. I bet he would know off the top of his head what backspacing to use with Budniks on 17x11 rim with stock rear width.

17x8 on the front and 17x11 on the rear with 7.25 backspacing.
