3rd Gen Wheels on a 67?

I found some wheels and tires (see below) from a 3rd gen Camaro for a great price locally and I was wondering if they would fit my '67. I assume the bolt patterns are the same (5 x 4.75") but what about back spacing? Will they fit?
Thanks in advance.

I've seen guys use them, but I almost have to assume they are using some sort of spacer, due to the stock backspacing of those rims.

This thread says it's 4.25" but I haven't been able to confirm.

They sure LOOK like more than that, but I cannot say for certain. Is it something you can test bolt on to your car, being available locally?

They are going to be 5 x 4.75 bolt circle, the backspacing is the only concern.

I decided to give it a shot, and they fit with no rubbing.
