Will a 10" wheel fit a 70 model without rubbing?

I'm sure this has been asked before so sorry for the repeat.

I would like to put a set of Torque Thrust d wheels on a 70 Rallye 350 probably 15X8" on the front and 15X10" on the rear and wasn't for sure if a 10" wheel will fit in the wheel well on the rear with no rubbing with out raising the rear. Will it? If so do I need a special offset or tire or for it to work?
I could go with 14" wheels, but I don't think they make Torque Thurst in 14"

Thanks!!

It will fit but what size tire are you wanting? There is another recent thread about the largest tire size on here somewhere.

Yes, a 10 inch rear wheel will fit. I have 10 inch rear rims with racing slicks on my 1970 cutlass supreme.

You have to watch the back spacing. I think you need 5" or 5 1/2".
