It's possible, I've got them on my 1968: 9.5-18's with 275-35's on the back and 8.5-17's with 245-45's on the front. (Sorry, I don't have any pictures.)

Depending on your brakes (disk or drum) you need a 1.75 to 2.0 inch bolt-on spacer (the spacer bolts onto your existing wheel studs and the wheel bolts on to the spacer), and perhaps longer wheel studs. I've got 2.0 inch spacers front and rear. I had to "clearance" the inner rear wheel wells a bit, and at full lock the front tires rub slightly on the subframe.

On the rears, you can get the wheels and tires in easily, but you need to account for the movement of the tire in the wheel well when one side of the rear is higher than the other, for example when going into a driveway at an angle.

I like the look a lot, and it's one of the cheaper big wheel solutions out there.
