Wheel/ tire size

Know that this topic gets beat to death but I can't find anyone who is running 235/ 15/ 60's on the front and 255/15/60's outback on 8" wheels... if anybody is backspacing and wheel info would be greatly appreciated
It's a 68 coupe
Thanks in advance

I think you will be having problems with the ball joints in front...I'm gonna be running 16's with 245's all around and it's tight in front. 15's might be to small with that setup.
I'm assuming you got discs in front?

That's what I'm doing, original 4piston disc setup. Like I said, it's a tight fit on 16's.

It's a PDF, probably can only see it on a computer. Sorry about that, it's pretty comprehensive.
