As far as I know, never having had the Drum Skins,  they are great covers for wide 5's . 

As to the wide wheels, with low profile tires you can use 17 inch wheels but you have some limitations to the width of the rims... Often times modifications to the rims have to be done in building the width towards the inside of the car which then means possibly reducing the front beam width and do the same for the rear.  Not for the faint of heart.  Some manufacturers add flares, cut pie shapes and stretch the fenders and the list goes on.   

Sorry.  I should have been more specific "within the existing body lines, no flares."

The short of it- 6" rims will fit on the front which will carry a 195 tire, while with the right combination of rear track and wheel offset/backspacing you should be able to fit 6 1/2-7" rims with 205's on the back. Irs is the same width as long swingaxle. Read through the threads above to find the info you need (I don't have time to put it all together now). Ask away if you still have questions. Al
