15x8 Rally Wheel question

Does anyone have Wheel Vintiques 15x8 rally wheel on there '69? I want to get the wheels tucked in a bit more and was thinking the 15x8 with 5 inch backspacing would look better. But heres my question, My car wont have a rolled fender lip,and I want to run a 255/60/15. Just wondering if anyone has this combo,and if there are issues with clearance inside or on the outside quarter lip. I seen a white '69 with a 4.5 inch back space and a 255 in the '69 wheel and tire combo sticky,but it does not say if he did any mods to the quarter. Any help would be appreciated

My 15X8, 4.5 BS and 245/60/15 rears fit with no problem on my '69. The quarters are not modified but I do have 1.5" Global West lowering springs. I'm sure 255's would fit on my car without any rubbing. 5" BS might be pushing it on the inside though.

Re: 15x8 Rally Wheel question

Great, thanks for the reply. Mine is lowered also 1.5 Hotchkis in the back,and 2 inch in the front. I just want to make sure before I spend the $ on them. My car is in the body shop now getting painted,and I dont want to roll the lip of the quarter. I will go with the 4.5 then....Thanks!
