Need Help with Wheel/Tire Fitment

Looking for a little help. My 69 camaro currently has the following:

Foose Legend F105 Wheels and Nitto NT555 Tires

Front - 17x7 w/ 4.000 BS and +1.00 mm offset with 235/45ZR17
Rear - 17x9 w/ 5.250 BS and +7.00 mm offset with P275/40ZR17

I am going back to more of a stock rim and tire combo:

American Racing Torque Thrust Originals and Mickey Thompson Sportsman Tires

Front - 15x7 w/ 3.76 BS and -6 offset with P235/60R15
Rear - 15x8.5 with 3.81 BS and -24 offset with P255/60R15

Does anyone see any fitment issues with the new setup ?

Thanks for any help and input.
