Rev Wheels Polished Aluminum 17's

Hey Folks - I just picked up my dream car (1967 Mustang Fastback) and am having it shipped to it's new home here in AZ.

I've spent a lot of time digging on the forums looking around for proper wheel size charts. I have a set of 4 wheels I originally intended to put on my 1965 Coupe GT, but now plan to put them on the fastback instead.

The wheels are made by Rev (polished aluminum) and are staggered. I'm running a 17x7 with a 4 inch BS up front and a 17x8 with a 4.5 inch BS in back. I want to equip them with some BFG All Sport Comp G2's at 225/45r17 up front and 245/45r17 out back. Can I do this on a 67 without rubbing or rolling the fenders? Should I be thinking of going 215/235 for a staggered look to be on the safe side with my 67?

This car is bone stock with 57k original miles. I'll be keeping the original wheels and hubcaps - I just don't want to tear anything up underneath. I did look at this chart, and don't see anyone running 17x7 with a 4inch BS. Looks like most folks are running a 17x8 with a 4.5 inch BS all around so that sounds like the backs should fit no problem. I am just worried about the fronts.

Chart: chrome-extension://oemmndcbldboiebfnladdacbdfmadadm/https://www.stang-aholics.com/files/downloads/tire-fitment-guide-67-68.pdf

As of right now I have drums, but a disc brake conversion to some wilwoods at least up front may not be too far off in the future.

Thanks for any feedback!

Jason

Sorry, my chrome browser has a PDF viewing extension - the link for the actual guide is on this page:

Actually it seems 17x8x4.75 is ideal with 225or235/45/17 on 65/66 and 67+ have more room
