need help selecting wheels on 1965 gto

Want to lower front of 65 gto 1 inch. Can this be done by cutting spring or is it better to buy new springs?

I believe either of those backspacing should work.
Check this page for fitment.

I'd go with at least 4.5" of backspacing. Pontiac GTO's of this vintage have more inside clearance than outside!
