Default Rims and Tires

I feel like I'm getting close enough to talk about rims and tires. Remember, in a couple years the car will be silver. These are the rims I plan on getting:

I'm not sure on tires. Right now the car has 245/60/15's all the way around. I really like how they look in the front but I'm not sure if they will rub or not with the 2" drop spindles. Once I get it started I can drive it around the driveway a little and see. On the back I would like them a little bigger. 255's for sure but maybe 275's? What do you guys think? I'll try to get a picture from the side this week.

I decided to stick with the 245/60/15's to start with. Ordered the rims and they showed up Thursday. Went to pick them up Saturday and they were the wrong color. Gray instead of black. Oh well, I'm not in a hurry. Should have them next week. I'll get a picture with them on.

I have 245/60x14, stock wheels, all the way around. I also have a set of 275/60x15 I run on the rear occasionally. They really fill up the wheel well.

Same wheel and tire sizes as Ken's car, Summit brand knock off torque thrusts.
