4.25 is typically the most common. 15x7 isn't overly large, you could run any of the 3 and choose tire size appropriately.

Any other combos to take up more wheel well ?
It depends on your ride height. You can sometimes fit 2456015 on the front, but it's always close. On the rear you can go as large as 2756015, but again, it really depends on your ride height.
If you really want 2456015 all the way around, buy 2 and have them mounted. try them on the front. if they clear, buy 2 more for the back. If they don't, use those 2 for the back and buy 2356015 for the front.

Is that just the 68 up? My 67 has 15x7 Rally 2's and I'd like to get a nice-fat, square, old skool 60 (like this) in the back. The car has new stock height coils, with 1" spacer

It more applies to ones like yours and mine. 65-67 fitments are similar to 68-72.
This is mine with 15x7 4.25" BS. 2356015 front and 2756015 back.

Both outstanding cars. Love the 235’s on the front ! Its just getting past the no tire rotation with bigger back tires. Because the back looks better with bigger tires.

I was going for 4 same size on this one. Put 2456015 all the way around. looked good. Did the front disc brake conversion, caused my track to widen about 1/4"....too much, fronts would no longer clear, so I dropped to 235's. Then I dropped in a 12-bolt w/3:31 gears. Since now I was already in a mismatched size situation, I went up to the tallest rear I could fit, 275s.
In the end, I think the stance and tire size worked out really well.

What about tire wear and rotation? What spare do you carry ? Both ?

It is what it is. I make sure the alignment is good, pressure is right and that's all I can do. Can go side to side if need be. Guess it's the price I have to pay. For me the 2356015 is way to small for the back.
So. Cragar S/S 61C. 15x7 w/ 4.25 BS. All around. 235/60r15 front,, 255/60 r15 in back Will fit. 1968
