Default need advice on rally wheel size

Hi guys


I recently purchased a 1970 chevelle convertible in cherry condition, car currently has cragers on it now which i am not a big fan of so i am on the hunt for advice.

I am interested in buying a some 15 inch SS rally's and i have been looking around and the set that original parts group has on their website seemed reasonable. I would appreciate any feedback about the reproduction rallys, pros and cons and best place to buy them.

I am planning on building a big block so I want to make sure to buy a rim that will get as much rubber on rears without running into modification complications with fender wells, does anyone have any suggestions? Is a 15x8 my only option without modifications?

I was thinking of 15x7 in front and 15x8 in rear. Any advise or suggestions are appreciated.

I had 15x7" fronts and 15x10" on the rear of my '70.

Thanks for your reply, do you remember if there was a specific backset to fit 15x10' in the rears?
