I`ve got 15x7 Cragar Eliminator 500 wheels with 4.125" back spacing front and rear with 215/65/15 front and 235/60/15 rear. Plan to go a little wider on the rear when the time comes.

Right now my 72 has Weld Rodlites, 7 and 8 in. Tires are 215/70, and 255/60. Just listed them on Craigslist. Was going to buy the Centerline Quaulifiers, but they said 2 mths on the 8 in. So I'll guess I'll go with the Billet Specialties Street lites. Now to decide on tires.

On my birthday three years ago my husband bought me a set of 4,

Rear 255/50/17
Fr 245/45/17
17 x 8 4.5" backspace

They handle great and gave my car the look I wanted.
Get in, sit down, shut up, hold on...cause Ms Grumpy is driving !

For the audio geek try:

From what I gather, you want the wheel width the same or close to the tread width.. With 15 x 7 wheels, I mounted 255/60-15 and 275/60-15 tires just for kicks (photo).. The tires didn't grip worth a damn.. I switched to 225/70-15 tires on the same wheels and they grip much better..

I'm having Series 62 wheels made up , 15 x 8 with 5.5 backspace and I'm using Master Craft 245/60r15 tires.. I'm having the wheels painted the same color as the car with dog dish hub caps..
