The hub to hub width of a stock 70's camaro is 61.5". (I think this is right). Does the track get wider once impala spindles are added? If so, by how much?

Inside to inside of backing plates is just under 55". I did not remove the wheels to measure axle flange to axle flange. Add a couple of inches per side for total width.

If you want it square, 61.5 outside to outside.

I get mine from

Ron doesnt charge anything more for custom, which 61.5 is. Speedway etc sell 60 and 62. Rons replacement houseings are also only 275 I think.
