I am going to be purchasing 15 x 7's also and plan to use a 225 in the front and 255 in the back. Haven't decided if I'm going 60 or 70 series yet.

I have always favored 255/60's on the rear and 215/60's on the front, however recently I wanted to give my '71 SS the more stock stance along with the luxury of a good ride and the ability to rotate my tires so I recently went with 215/70's
