820X15 Firestone Dirt Track Tires

Hey Guys and Gals:
I need an opinion on running these tires on the rear of a '48 Ford F1, with a stock running flathead V8, 239CI, 9 inch rear end with 3.25. First, will they fit? without rubbing, and will I be able to spin them once in awhile? If you are running them on your rig, please send me a picture. Thanks. Ralph.

Are these reproductions and new, or old tires, or real dirt track tires, or street tires that look like dirt tires?

Are they DOT approved?

Tube or tubeless?

Bias ply, right? What tire you gonna run up front?

You should be able to spin them if you gas it at the right time.
