    The front wheel wells have extra space so steering wheels can swivel.

    They should work, you probably have them mounted on the wrong offset wheels.

    I own a 67 Camaro and can tell you that 15x7 rims are too big for the front,especially with 65 series tires.They hit the fender liner when turned..14x6 rims with 215 /60r14 will work.The existing rears will probably clear if the ride height is tall enough

    Wrong offset wheels?

    Stretch out the fenders with a scissor jack a little. I did that on a Pontiac successfully once. Be careful. If no joy, replace the wheels. You know what your mistake was though. I don't need to spell it out.

    Yes, I have several ideas. Did you want to ask a question?

    The largest stock wheel in '67 used on the Z28-SS was a 15x6 with E70-15 tires, which is equivalent to 215/60R15. You didn't say where it is rubbing and under what circumstances but you shouldn't have trouble with the /65's unless the wheel you are using has the wrong offset. That's a common problem and many a dumbass has been stung by failing to consider offset when buying wheels.

    205 75 15s  up front have almost the same diameter of the 215 65 15s on the back and won't rub.

      good answer; the original wheels were 14x5s or 14x6s, except for Z28s which had 15s, so any wheel&tire combination with larger overall size than the original wheels & tires will be too big, and can cause handling difficulties, unless the rubbing is only very slight & when certain odd situations
