That might be real close to rubbing on the outer wheel lip if your car is lowered. I have some 255/16 on 16x8 with 4.5" backspacing and it's pretty close to the outer wheel lip. My car is not lowered so I don't think it will be a problem.

Jeff H. thanks for the help. my car is a 68 z/28 w/new 4 leaf springs it is not lowered.also considered 255/50's but thought that might be pushing it a bit. car is lowered in front w/ hotchkis springs & heidt's tubular control arms.thanks again.
I do have 225/50/16 up front and 255/50/16 on my 67. It has single leaf springs. The wheels are Wheel Vintiques in 7/16 and 8/16. The rears have a 4" BS. The fitment is fine, and I didn't have to modify the wheelwells.
