1st Gen wheel guidance

I bought a big brake kit for my 68 that has 13 in front rotors and requires 17 in or bigger wheels. I was wondering if anyone knows of a chart or personal experience as to what size and offsets etc that will fit on a stock 1968 Camaro. I would like to get the widest tire possible in the back and thinking about 17 front and back or maybe 18 in the back. Thank you

Don't take anyone's word for it measure your own backspacing. Make a template.
