    It depends on how your car sits. If it sits lower than stock, they won't fit. If the car sits like the early Z28s, you can fit a 245-60-15 on stock 7" wheels. If it sits like the early non-Z28 or almost all later Camaros, even the 245 could be a problem.
    You need to do some measuring before you buy anything.
