    Found some wheels and tires. They are 16x8 5 on 4.5 with 4" backspace. Tires are 195/50R16 on front and 235/70R16 on the back. My 66 cuda is all stock will they fit? I am doing a LBP conversion on the car disc brakes in front and 8 1/4 rear.

    No, not enough backspacing. 4.5 would fly. 4" no way. Perfect backspacing on an 8" wheel is 4.75.

      They will fit if you run a tire that has at most 8.9" section width.
