    those rear wheels will be a tight fit I think. They would fit my car but I don't have the factory sheet metal there anymore... Here's a good video:

      The stock '64 wheels were 15 x 5 1/2 so I don't know where those wheels came from. I doubt very much that anything that wide will fit on a Squarebird without major modifications.

          I have 18x8 with 235/40r18 up front and 18x9.5 with 275/40r18 in the back. The wheels have almost zero offset and fit in nice. The wheels you are looking at should fit. Before you mount the tires try the wheels first with a cardboard tire. Depending on the new wheel construction, you might haveto replace the wheel studs with longer ones to get enough engagement on the lug nuts. Also with that big of tire on the rear, you will have to jack the body up to change tires.
