Will these fit 2" drop

Hey guys, can get a great deal on these, and wondering if they'll fit my new 69' with a 2" drop...

FOOSE LEGEND 1 PIECE WHEELS
18X7 ET +7 OFFSET = 4.25 BACK SPACING
18X8 ET +14 OFFSET = 5.5Ē BACK SPACING
5x4.75 / 5X120.65 BOLT PATTERN


Thanks
Steve

Re: Will these fit 2" drop

A 7" wide wheel with 4.25" bs is +6 offset and an 8" wide wheel with 5.5" bs is +25 offset. See the chart below.



Both will fit your '69 but you will have to run rather narrow tires in the rear. +6 offset is the magic number for centering your wheels in the wheel well to get the widest tire inside your fender.

Im running 8 inch wide in the front and 9 inch in the rear. I'd go a bit wider but depends on the look you want.
