Ok, I know this has been answered a million times, but what fits nicely on 15 x 7 " rims with no rubbing on the front and same size all around. Thanks

I have used P225-60 / 15's on that size with good results. Kind of depends on the tire, all tires the same marked size are not created equal. Have one mounted and try it on all locations before mounting the rest.

I'm glad this thread popped up again as I plan on 15 X 7 GT rims for my 69. Looks like I'll go with 225 or 235 60SR 15's.

Thanks guys.

Same here. 15/235/60 Like royce, I've used radial t/a's without any problem.
and maybe it's me, but I use a set of 16" wheels on road and autocross tracks. The 15s are much more comfortable to me on the road.
for what its worth

Also what about backspacing? MU sells Magnum 500 rims 15 x7 with 4 1/4 inch backspacing. Will these work? Thanks all.

That's the backspacing on my magnums. I run 215/65/15's on a 15x7 wheel on my 69. No problems with this size. Check the clearance to the inside of your suspension. I had enough room to go to a 225 on the outside, but was concerned about the inner clearance to the suspension if i went any wider.
