I'd have look up my notes but if they are on a 67 they will definitely fit on a 123. My only worry is that they will look pretty small on your car.

Those tires definitely qualify as "pizza cutters." whistling

Rims in those sizes (widths) typically want tires a little wider.  I would think the 225s should be on the 7" rims, with 255s on the 8" rims - but it's hard to argue if the tires work well and look good as they are. Wink

Well, keep in mind I have different sized rims. Cool

Up front, I have 245/60R15 on 15x8 rims.  Out back, I have 295/50R15 on 15x10 rims.

17-inch rims will look a lot different, but the tires will look pretty skinny.

Pretty much anything that will fit on the earlier cars will fit on the later cars. A 0 offset will fit in the wheel wells well, but these tires will be both narrow as some people have mentioned and short. The front tires will be 25" tall with about an 8" section width (tread width around 6" or so), and the back tires will be about 1/2" wider and actually slightly shorter. People mostly tend to run 10-12" wide and just under 26-28" tall on these cars (Mister 4x4's fronts are just over 26" tall and just under 10" wide and the rears are almost 27" tall and almost 12" wide.

If you really like the AR wheels if it was me I'd likely keep the rears and use them on the front with a 245-255 45 or 50 series tire and then get the same wheel with the same tire on the back if you want to be able to rotate them or a 17x9-17x11 for the back with an appropriately sized tire back there.
