68 camaro best wheel & tire fit

Seems like trying to find the perfect wheel & tire combo for your car is a common issue for most. I have a 68 camaro convertible with stock suspension that sets very even all the way around and have been stewing for 6 months over what size of wheel & tire to use. So I finally bought wheel vintique rallye 15x7 for front 4" back space and 15x8 4.5" backspace for rear. Tires size I am not sure about but have narrowed it down to BFG radial T/A and need help with which of the following would work best with out rubbing:
Front 215/65/15 Rear 235/60/15 or 255/55/15
Front 205/65/15 Rear 235/60/15 or 245/55/15

Looking for some expert experienced advise! Thanks

Re: 68 camaro best wheel & tire fit

I have the same rim size/back spacing combo that you have. I ended up using 215 65-15 up front and 255 60-15 on the back. They fill up up the wheel wells nicely and have penty of clearance. I do have hotchkis drop springs front and rear so I'm sure you would be safe with these tires under the stock suspension.

1968 Camaro Coupe: Forged 383, AFR heads, Edelbrock Air-Gap intake, Holley 750 dp, Dynatech headers (557 HP/543 TQ), TKO-600, 12 Bolt 3.73, Vintage Air.
