Post favorite wheel/tire sizes for 56 chevy?

I'm working on a '56 chevy sedan delivery and was looking for suggestions for wheel and tire sizes. I've installed 2" drop spindles w/disc brakes on the front. I would love to run 10" rims on the back, but don't want to relocate the rear springs, so I know that isn't possible. The brakes require that I use 15" (or larger) rims, so let me know what you're running.

Thanks,

Steve

Steve, about 10 years ago I had a 56' Sedan Delivery....ahh, the memories. Any way, I used 8 inch Vette rally wheels, the front tires were p245 and the rear was p275. I also lowered the front about 2 inches and added a sway bar kit (really nice in the turns). The rear used air shocks. The rear tires did not rub but boy they filled up the wells!
