Will these wheels fit a 68?

Friend bought wheels for his 70 Nova and it letting me have them and they never had tires mounted.
Sizes are
17x8 4"BS
17x10 4.5"BS

I have newly rebuilt stock mono-leaf suspension on my 68 Vert.

Will these wheels fit? Do I need to roll the fenders? What size tires? Like to fill the rear wheel well.
Thanks

Re: Will these wheels fit a 68?

Looks like no one has helped you yet and I am no expert but this is what I think. It all depands how low your car is. I am not sure about the 17x10 wheels, I'm thinking the 17x10 wheels will not fit if car is lowered, you may have to roll the fenders even with a say 245 tire, but I dont know for sure someone else with more experence may chime in. The 17x8 may be okay, because I have 4 15x8 4"bs with 60/215 up front with no problems, and 60/245 out back with no problems. I am looking to order some 17x9.5 w/5.5bs for the back and 17x8 w/4.5bs up front with about the same circumference tires as I have now. But my car is a 67, 68 I think its about the same.
