69 with 15x7 ralley - tire options?

Been reading posts on this topic but could not find any pictures of the combo I am considering. From what I have read, on a stock/original suspension (mono leaf) 4 drums, I can go with 225 60 15 on the front and 245 60 15 on the back without any issues, on 15x7 ralleys.

I would love to see a picture of a 69 with this set up if anyone has one.

Thanks

Chris

Do you have any rubbing issues with the 235 in the front or the rear ? I have 15 x 7 all the way around and would like to go with the biggest tire I can without rubbing. Most guys are telling me 235 60 front on 15 x 7 and 245 60 back on 15 x 8.

Here's an old shot of my car with 235/60/15's front and rear. FW and YH rallys, front disc, rear drums, 5 leaf rear springs stock height and no rubbing at all. You shouldn't have problems with either tire unless you have some odd backspaced wheels.


sorry about the pic quality...
