Default Tires

My wifeís 1970 4 dr 350 automatic has 15x7 American racing rims w/205 65R15ís front and back. It has power front and rear disc brakes. Needs tires but this size really limits our choices. Want to use same same size on all fours and want to avoid rubbing. Suspension is stock.
Advice greatly appreciated!

What is the backspacing on the wheels? This would be the biggest limiting factor.

I’ll have to measure to be sure. When doing the tire conversion from the original E78 14 to 15’s the 205 65R 15’s seem to be the comparable fit.
But Thanks! I will determine the backspacing next.

Backspacing is 4.25, not sure about the offset.

What model wheels do you have? Most of the 7" wide 1 piece wheels only have 3.76" of backspacing.
