1967 camaro...will they fit??

I have an offer to buy some rally wheels for my 1967 camaro, drum brakes all around. They are: 2 14x6 XG and 2 14x6 YW. They have 195-70R14 and 245-60R14 tires on them. Will these fit my camaro or are they sized different enough that they will look funny.
Thanks,
Chuck

Chuck -

The tire sizes, height wise, aren't too different. The fronts would be roughly 24.8 inches, the backs about 25.5 inches. No prob.

Be advised that the rallys are made for disk brake cars, so you can have backspace issues up front (1/4 inch or so too much backspace). I had 205 70 14s on 14x6 rallys, and they would rub the tie rod ends under cornering. I had to put in a 1/4" spacer. May not be an issue with 195s.

I had 235 60 14 on 14x7 rallys out back, and they fit fine.
