Probably but you'll have to measure the width of the wheel house and position the tire inside of it with the corresponding backspacing/offset on the wheel to mount to the axle flange.

Unfortunately 55-57 Chevy's do not have a lot of room for big tires. I had a lot of them in my time and the biggest tire I could get in the stock wheel well was an 8" slick.
