Tie rod and upper control arm/ball joint clearance can become an issue with deep-offset wheels in front. Pictured is our '70 Camaro's 17x9.5 Weld wheel with 6-inch backspacing to fit a 275/40ZR17 tire up front. See how the tie rod actually rides inside the wheel. If it were a 16-inch-diameter wheel, the tie rod would hit.
