I've got a line on some Cragar SS in 14x7 but they have a 3 3/4 backspacing. Will these fit my 69 with 215/70's or 225/65's? I've check the archives and cant find a definitive answer.

One more thing. Will that backspacing make them hang out of the wheel well?

Depends on the tire brand, but no, it should be fine. Just real close to the edge. 14 x 6 Cragars are actually perfect for my tastes.
