Anyone familiar with these cars wheel setups

Hey everyone I was wondering if anyone if familiar with either of the wheel and tire combos on these cars. I'm looking for a similar setup for my 69' and it seems easier for me to just copy someones that already works. Any info on size and any mods if needed to achieve this look would be appreciated.

I found the green car is running a 275/65 on 15x8s any guess as to the offset and info for the front as well. I really wanna order some new shoes for this spring.

+6 offset centers the wheel and tire in the well if the axle and hub are in the stock position on a '69. That would be 4.75" of backspacing on an 8" wide wheel.
