You may have clearance issues with the typical 15x7 Camaro wheels if
the car is lowered - if you get a set with some more backspace they
should fit just fine and the car will drive better. The Camaro wheel
puts all of the extra width on the outside. I believe that a BMW wheel
has backspacing closer to ideal for a Corvair. For a bunch of examples
of various setups, see:
