Rim/Tire suspension combo

I am looking for some rims and possibly some new suspension for our 67 hard top. We just got the 4 wheel disc conversion kit from Ames. It does not have the stock looking engine compartment and would like the outside to resemble a classy rod look. Any suggestions rim size, width, offset, tire type, suspension? Thanks for your help.

I like the Cragar`s, I have 15x10s w/295/50/15s on the rear and 14x7s in the front. Bought them from Summit. The rears barely fit and I had to trim the inside of the fender well moldings, but they look awesome!
