Another "Will These Tires Fit?"

Sorry - I tried to search it but couldn't come up with a certain answer.

Local craigslist has a listing for "Camaro Wheels" at a good price. They're rally wheels with trim rings and center, and it says the tires are 255/60/R15 (back) and 245/60/14 (front). I have a bone-stock suspension '67 convertible. Back is kinda saggy. Will these wheels and tires likely fit without rubbing, assuming that the backspacing isn't screwed up?

One foot in the grave, the other on a banana peel. . .

I don't have a '67 for 1st hand advice but those are rather common tire sizes found on 1st gens. The real key is ride height, wheel width and back spacing. Have you looked through the sticky thread at the top of this forum for '67 Wheel and Tire combos? Maybe even look at the one for '68s too...

I looked through the sticky thread. It looked like the back tires wouldn't be an issue, but I couldn't find any fronts of that size. Most of the front tires seemed to be a bit skinnier. I think it's probably those front ones that I need to worry about.

I didn't think about wheel width. I did think about backspacing, but unfortunately I don't have that info at the moment.
