Need help with a wheel setup...

I have a 67 Coupe with the TCI independent front suspension setup (Adjustable, Mustang II type) and a Ford 9" Rear end with upgraded leafs and shackles:

For the front I want to run 17"X9" wheels with 255/40's

For the rear I want to run 17"X10" wheels with 285/40's

The wheels are made for a 94-04' mustang (10th Anniversary style) so I know I will need wheel adapters to clear the hubs. My question is if this setup will actually fit under my car with my suspension setup? Will a 285 tire on a 10" wide rim fit in the rear without needing to be "tubbed"?

Anyone running close to this setup?

The rear depends on the size the 9" is. Some 9" are wider than others, so you want to verify the one that you have. I have a 9" in my 67, and ran with stock 01-04 GT rims for a little while. Those are 17"x8", with stock tires (i believe a 245/45) and the fit, just barely. The wider 10" rims/tires might give you an issue.
