I have 275/40R17s on the rear of my '64, also no issues and no modifications required. It is tight, I won't lie. But zero rubbing or clearance issues. I didn't do the build, so I don't know what the offset on the wheels is.

look at the inner part of the rear wheel well and see if its flat to the frame rails or has a 2" lip and then the wheel well
