I just mounted a pair of the new Mickey Thompson sportsman s/t radials.
255/6015 ...they fit perfect & hook better than any B/F T/A's I've ever ran!
I will try and get a couple pics up for you.

Here are a couple pics of mine. 255/60/15 on a 15x8 rim with 4.5 backset. I would suggest you get a 7" rim if you have no fender mods or anything - as mine are REAL tight on the passenger side. The rear ends are not centered very well on most Novas. The 7" gives you a little less width profile and clears the fender lips better....

I was able to get a 245/45R17 on a 17x8 with 5.25 backspace with no problems. Car has the orginal single leaf 8.2 rear end.
