Default Tire recommendations

My friend is building a '67 Nova SS. He has chosen 15X6 Rally wheels and would like to know the best tire sized radial that will fit on this rim (stock fenders/wheel wells). The car has a 2" drop front with Disc brakes. The wheels have a 3 1/2" backspace I believe. He is more concerned with clearance really so I guess the question is more of what will fit on a 6" rim rather than how wide they are. I don't think any bigger than a 70 series will fit on a 6" rim. Thanks.

can't get much tire on a 6" rim. he should be able to get a 7" rim in the back to clear easily. a 60 series tire will fit a 6" rim but it will be short. a 195/60/15 is probably the narrowest and a 225/60/15 is probably the widest to fit on a 6" rim.

Thanks Jay. He want to have all 4 tires the same size so if the 225/60-15 will work, he should probably go with that.
