Tire size and spacing question

What I’m looking to run is a 15X7 rim with 4.125 backspacing and 215/70/15 tire in the front.
In the back will be 15X10 rim with 4.25 backspacing and 295/50/15 tire.
Anybody ever run this setup?

With those offsets (f & R) they are going to stick out a bunch. Especially the 10".

Doh! I thought I read 15x8 on the front. The 15x7 should be fine. Have you done or doing a hub swap?

Even with a hub swap those are going to stick out. Those are negative offset wheels . Our cars need positive offset wheels.

Don't think for a minute that you can use adapters to use those wheels.

Yes, so all of the extra width of wider wheels is going to be on the outside.

I'm really starting to hate my wheel choices. I just noticed that none of the SS Cragar's have a 4.25 lug pattern
