Re: Front tires rubbing tie rods
Do have drums or disks up front? I had the same setup on my 68 when I bought it, 205/70 on 14x6 rallys. With the drum brakes, the tie rod ends gouged the sidewall pretty bad (I guess I must have driven her harder than the PO). I put on a thin spacer, and it was fine. When I went to disc brakes, the problem went away because the additional offset of the rotor (1/4 or so outboard) acted like the spacer.
The recommended rim width for a 205/70/14 is 5.0 to 7.5 inches. On a 6 inch wheel, it bulges the sidewall pretty good. So, if you go 15 x 7 with correct backspace for whichever brake setup you have, and you choose a tire that fits you should be fine. In other words, the 15x7 with a 205 may actually fit better, if the backspace is the same, because even though the rim is a little wider, the tire sits more square on it.
