Anyone run a 15x8 rally with a 4.25" backspace and at 255/60 r15 wheel tire combo on all 4?

Looking at these-

and these tires

Looks like there are 15x8 rally wheels with either a 4.25" backspace or 4" backspace.

Which would be better? Does .25" matter

4.25" https://www.summitracing.com/parts/vsw-55-5861/ove ...

4.25" with that tire wouldn't work on my 65. It might on your 66. I'd stay away from a 8" wheel with 4" BS.

Best would be to measure - if you have or can borrow a known wheel and tire size then you can compare it based on what measurements change between it and the wheel you want to run.
