46 Chevy front end

We have a 46 Chevy pick-up sitting on a 1977 C-10 frame which brings the front tires outside the front fenders. Without buying or making a new frame, which is the easiest/cheapest way to close up that front end?
Sub frame? Positive offset rims? Thanks!

They stick out about 1 1/4" from the fenders . The rims are 7-15s
Not sure of the backspacing . Will measure when I get to the shop.

what is the bolt pattern?
5 on 5? if so that will make it tougher to find wheels

Yes, 5 on 5. Found a place that can make the rims we need but at 600 bucks each, trying to find a different way.

here is a chart of vehicles with that pattern
the newer the car the more likely it will be what you want
the first one off of the top of my head would be the new jeep
they are bigger dia. also

66 to 77 Toronado and Eldorado wheels have that bolt pattern, and about 2" more backspacing than Chevy truck wheels.
