smallest recommended tire for your rear 10inch wide rim is a 295 wich is pretty darn big... i got on my 82 grand prix some 15x8 on the front with 205/60R15(i know the tires not reccomended for the rim but i bought the wheels/tires used) and rear 15x10 with 295/50R15

i would say..

Rear: 295/50R15
Front 245/60R15

just depends on what look you are wanting...

heres a couple pics of what i got that could give you ideas
