Will this combo work on a 69 coupe with standard suspension?
What do you mean by "work"? It will fit, but you may need stiffer rear springs to prevent rear tire rub. I'm running 235/60/15 on 15x7 at all four corners with no rubbing issues. The 15x8 (Corvette) rally wheels have a different offset that can make many tires rub.

15x8 Corvette rally wheels have A 4" back spacing,
They will rub with any reasonable sized tire, unless you like the jacked look in the rear I would get correct back spacing.

Steve, from 225x60x15 on stock ralley wheels , I worked up to 235 and 245 , they did clear but 245 seem to touch headlamp motor cover bucket sheild on a bump steer. Things got better when I went to a 245x50x16 on a custom wheel.

Murry...

My 15x8 rims are 4 1/2 " backspace. I run them on a 68 and with 225X15 fronts and 255X15 rears get slight rubs. A 69 has a wider wheel opening and should be fine...
