15x8 ralley with 5" backspace for a 69

I got a chance to buy repo SS wheels (15x8) with a 5 inch backspace...
Will these fit a 69 Camaro on just the back.? Thanks

Probably not, but the tire size will also come into play.

I had them on my 69 but it had a rear end from a 70's camaro which is 1" longer than stock. I had a 275 wide tire on it and the shock just cleared by about 1/2".

If your rear end is the stock length best thing would be to check out what clearances you have now with the current back spacing and go from there.

My 8" rear wheels have 4.75" back space and the 255 tires are centered for maximum clearance. I believe a tire with any width will rub the frame area unless you adjust the wheel out with a spacer.
