You could use the bigger wheels cylinders from fronts for extra stopping power those axle stubs they must be cut down I haven't seen the re-drilled drums before with studs 5x130 you say interesting big tires lowered bug short axles could rub on inside watch your offset.

I really don't think that those cosmics would fit with even 165s the problem is they don't seem to be dished much and with no adapters and camber 4 people in the car I am sure that inside wall of tire would contact that upper body mount. I had that problem running 60's vw van rims I could give you some #'s to work with if you ask.
