Another will these fit

71 convertible. I'm looking at a set of at wheels to get me by until the car is done and to not spend a ton of cash on the ones I want now. I'm pretty sure I won't lose any on these. They are 18x10 and 18x8. The rears have 255 45 tires the fronts have none. Eyeballing a tepe it looks like the offset is 4.5, maybe 4.75. Car will be lowered 2".

after reading some more threads it looks like I have to have 5.5" on a 10" wheel.

4,5 backspacing on a 10" wide wheel might rub the outer lip of the quarter panel. As you found, 5.5" on a 10" wide wheel is ideal.

That's what I'm aftaid of. I was hoping since the tires aren't that wide they might fit. I can't try them right now because the body is not on the frame.
