I had that size on my 67, they were mounted on 15x8 Weld Draglites with 4 1/2" backspacing. The fender opening sat right at the tire bulge, about 1/2 way down the sidewall. There never rubbed even with someone in the back seat and a full tank of gas, that was with non-roller wheel well outer lip.
Im running those on my 66. Basically 8" rim with 4.5 backspace. Actually . my draglites have a 5.5" backspace but I have to run 1" spacers to clear the shocks.
I tried that tire on factory 8" ralleys (4" backspace) and hitting a bump they would rub. Jim
