Torq trust rims foe a Camaro RS/SS

Hi all
I need help here. I want to bay new rims and tires.
Desided for the Torq Trust D. But what size of rims and tires.?
I want it to look cool, but not extreme. And it have to work well. No rubbing. If that is the right word. ?
Thanks in advance

Mark - what suspension is under your car to get it to that height? I have a '67 and am about to install the Hotchkis TVS.

Thanks!

Hi Dave , the rear has dearced multi leafs with QA1 coilovers so I can set ride height , the front has Speed Tech upper and lower control arms with the QA1s also , it corners great and rides really nice . Also I have a 1 1/8 sway bar up front .

Here's a pic of my 69 with Torq thrust D's. 15x7 front, 15x8.5 rear. I think if I did it again I would probably go with 16X8 rear to keep it more in the wheel well. Maybe even a 17.

If for some reason you might consider TT II's, click on my link and look at them on the wife's 69.

The blue camaro has 15x7's with 245x60's all around. They rub a little on the front when turned sharp but that car is lowered 2". The yellow car has 15x6 in the front w/215x70 and 15x8 out back w/275x60's. no rubbing.
