Question Can someone re-check my measurements on rims/tires please?

The goal:
All 4 wheels & tires the same size, so I can rotate 'em, with no or very little rubbing at all. Totally stock ride height/springs, etc on my '67.
Looking for 235/60-15 tires.
Weld wheels series 96 (star) 15x8, but they have 3 part numbers. 1 I know is not correct, so its down to 2 choices.
Part # 96-58278 15x8, 0 offset w/4.5 backside

or

Part # 96-58280 15x8, 25 offset w/5.5 backside

Am I correct with using the 0 offset one, since this is only a 235/60?
Thanks everyone! Just want to get it right the first time. Yes, I did see the tire calculators on the "sticky".
Thanks for re-checking for me.....

You need a 7" with the 4.5 b.s on the front unless it sits high or you do wheel well mods. Sorry, the rotate method won't work on a 67 unless you want a skinny out back. Don't go there.
