Here is a thread on wheel and tire fitment. Its nearly 30 pages of the nitty gritty on wheel setups.

https://gbodyforum.com/threads/wheel-fitment-guide.2442/

Here is also another sticky'd thread that has some good information on backspacing and offset.

The search feature will give you hundreds of results on this as well, its a pretty common topic.

You have a ton of wheel options for these cars. It really all depends on what you want to do. Drag racing, pro touring, strictly street, street/strip, are you planning on doing a low rider, or do you like 20" and up wheels etc.

I have 2 sets of wheels for my car. One are 15"x7" US Wheel Supremes, in 3.625" backspacing. On these wheels I run a 205/70/15 in the front and a 275/60/15 in the rear.

I also have a set of 15"x8" American Racing Astro Wheels. Eventually I'll refinish them to use just for my street tires, but for now I have my slicks mounted on them. They are 4" backspacing, with a 26"x9" Hoosier slick.

And for me right now I have 22inch rims with 235/30r22 tires I have my original 14inch rallys but it's hard to find tires for them. I also have 2 different sets of 15 inch tires 205/60r15 and the other set is 275/60r15. So I am thinking of just finding some 15inch rims

Right now my Cutlass still has the stock 14x6 rallye's with 245/60/14 BFG's. The fronts rub just barely at full lock. They will be retired once I do the blazer brake upgrade which requires a 15" wheel....

I have to get tires for my new wheels. They are American Racing VN501's. 17x7 front will have 225/50/ZR17, and 17x8 rear will have 255/45/ZR17....
