Classic tires on a 1968 camaro

I have a 1968 Camaro convertible. I want to run 15 rally wheels (FW code with 4.25 backset) on the car and classic tires (Goodyear preferred). The rear has stock leaf springs but the front has 1 lowered coils. From floor to top edge of front fender lip currently is 26.5 (running 235/40-18 tires)...245/45-18s fit inside but did not fit at a full lock turn (rubbed at rear of fender). I want to order the right tire. I am interested in the E70-15 Goodyear or the F60-15 Goodyear. Will either of those work with the 1 lowered front end...and at full lock turn? I appreciate your help.
This is not a question of should I run the tires but will they fit correctly.
This is a fairly technical question and really might need the help of someone with an advanced wheel and tire calculator. If I use basic tools it seems to me that the E series will be too tall in the front... and the F60 might be a bit wide...
Again thanks.
