Will 4" b.s. work on a 69 front and rear? The rear tires are 255/55's will that fit?

I don't think they will fit properly! The rear should fit fine with a 4.75" offset. The front will need to be at least 4.75" if not 5" offset to make an 8" rim fit.

I have 15x8's in the rear with 4" bs and they just barley tuck in. I like it like that way. I have 235's though. It will not fit for sure with the 255's and that bs.

4.5 to 4.75 on an 8".

5.5 on a 9.5".
