Re: 15x7 or 15x8?
15x8's with proper backspace will fit. The chrome vs. aluminum is purely your choice. Many 1st gens ran with chrome Crager S/S' back in the day so it has that period correct look as does nearly any 5 spoke wheel. See my link below for photos. I run 15x7 with 225/60 up front and 245/60 in back.
Aluminum can be polished to a nearly mirror like finish and using good polish and a power ball or similar tool makes the effort a heck of a lot less. I polish just the lips on my TT-D's and it takes 5-10 minutes per wheel. When I polish the big Alcoa's on the motor coach it takes ~20 minutes per wheel. By hand it would easily take 3-4x longer.
