Impulse purchase. Will they fit?

Someone was selling a set of modern Mustang wheels on Facebook, and I jumped.
Now it occurs to me that I really don't know if/how these will fit. Bolt pattern appears to be correct. Current tires are 235/55/17, which I assume I will need to replace with something... what? 45 profile? Do I need a spacer or a... What?

Oh, I should probably mention. Putting this on a -66 289 coupe. Quarters and fenders are about to be replaced, so I guess rolling wouldn't be a big issue if I need to.

Thanks,

TGV

the rims will fit with an 1.5" adapter

the tires probably aren't really what you want though. I went with 225/45/17 because I got them free ,If I was buying 235/45/17(actually just got some of them free also) or maybe 255/40/17
