15x7 on rear and 14x6 front 60's on a 1967 rsss

Please any advice with this on a 67 stock suspension. The stance/look I am trying to achieve is just a touch above level. I was thinking of 245's 60 on the rear and 225's 60's on the front but with different rim sizes. Will this give me my result. Does anyone have a suggestion or perhaps a pic I can get to so I can see the look. Thanks for the help.

I've been running 235/60/15 on 15x7 rears and fronts with stock suspension. They were 4.25" backspacing. My car is pretty level. I felt 15x7s didn't put the rears out far enough to the fender lip so I put 15x8 on the rears with 4" bs.
Much better now. The front 15x7's rub on the frame on tight turning but I can live with it. This photo is with 8's on the rear. Lots of people run 255/60/15 on the rears. Check out the stance on Farmboy's 67 RS also.

I guess the question I have is if there is any advantage to running with different rim size to create a less than level stance

You should be able to measure your old combo and match the overall tire size. The only real reason for larger rims, is so big disc brakes will fit. Oh and less tire sidewall for a rougher ride er, better performance !
