'65 Max Tire Size for 17s

I am in the process of doing a resto-mod on my 65 GTO, which includes a new Hotchkiss suspension and 4-wheel disc brakes. I want to put 17x8 Cragar wheels on the front and back, but I am struggling to determine what is the biggest tire sizes I can install on these wheels (assuming bigger size in the back) and not have an issue with rubbing. For you guys that have installed 17" wheels on your 65 GTO, what tire sizes are you using, front and back?
