Tire question

could someone tell me what would be a good choice for tire size and wheel widths for my 67.I'm wondering if someone has played around with this issue before.I have 6" wheels with 70's on front right now and 7" rear with 70,s.could I go with a 60 in back without clearance problems?how about 7"front rims and 8" rear rims with 60,s on back.I do not want to lift rear of car at all....kinda want a little wider look and I need to get some new tires,can anyone help?

I have 15x7 Cragar wheels on one car with 245x60 on the rear and 205x60 on the front. Gives a nice fat look on the rear. It is not much clearance on the right rear but have not had any problem.

I am going to put 15x7 rallye II's with a 4.5" backspace on the other car. Hope to be able to put 255x60 on the rear and 215x60's on the front.
