Tire/Wheel Combination Fitment

This list of what size tire/wheel combination is ever growing as more documented combinations are discovered. What works for these applications should work for you given the same make/model/year of Chevelle but no guarantees are made. If you would like to donate your wheel/tire combinations that work, please contact me here. A link to a picture (or a clear picture) would be welcomed as well. Note: measurement for each wheel listed is diameter/width/backspacing unless otherwise noted.
