Default What size TTD 15"?

So I my car is almost ready for paint. I have finished the engine and just need one more gasket to replace. I decided I want to order wheels and tires before paint and body. I also already ordered everything I need for the interior. I am getting Torque Thrust D's. I have all stock suspension no sag and want to know what is the best size. I was thinking 15x7 225 in rear and 15x6 205 in front. Can anyone point me to the widest 15x7s that will fit front and rear in a 65 mustang. Will 215 15x7 rub in the front. Do I need to run 15x6 in the front to keep from rubbing. What would you guys recommend front and rear must be 15 inch. Thanks!

Why 15"?

What do you plan to do with the car? There aren't a lot of good non drag radial tires available in 15" these days. 17 or 18 is where most of the current tire development is.

15 and 16, you can get some good tires, but they're limited in size.

With 17's I'm running 275 rear and 245 front on my 67. The backspacing isn't ideal, so there's a bit of rubbing in the rear over severe bumps, and none in the front at the current height (but I might cut the coils in the front to drop it another 1/2" and then it might rub over severe bumps). If I moved the front and rears in 1/4" it'd have 0 issues.

225 front and 245 rear will fit with plenty of space, the wheel wells are a bit tighter on the 65/66 though, so going larger than 225/245 might be problematic unless you have really good suspension and custom backspacing.
Who cares how much horsepower it has, all that matters is how fast it goes!

Untested 331, lots of suspension, chewing up corners.
