    I think you're going to need some serious wheel spacers to get them to fill the wheelwells. Those have the offset for a front wheel drive car, so are going to be set in very far once your body is on.

    More details. 2012 Buick what? How wide are they? Measure the back space.

    Looks like the offset is 40mm on a 2012 Lacrosse. That's about 1.5". So on an 8" wheel, that's about 6" back space. The 68-69 need more back space than the 70-72. If there is no interference inboard, it might work. Without the body on the frame, hard to say.

    In Ontario, Canada, wheel spacers are BANNED. Your car, if it has these, will not pass a safety check.

    I'd bet it will rub on the fronts with contact to the frame in the rear and the sway bar or possibly the frame/wheel well in the front.

    In the rear I'd think you won't have much room for movement like running over an uneven area that rotates the rear under the car. For instance, jack one rear side up and the body goes up but the rear lags. Jacked wheel falls away from body, non-jacked side wheel pivots in toward the inner wheel well.
