The specs for wheels I've used are on my tire page:


Be aware that none of the 15x7 Camaro wheels have 4 1/2" of  
backspace.  It's more like 4 1/4" or less, depending on the wheel.

You're correct that the tire sizes you have there will almost  
certainly hit the fenders with the wheels that are available off the  
shelf.  Custom backspace wheels could be made that would allow those  
sizes to fit, however.  Don't exceed 5 1/4" of backspace.
