Tire sizing for 66 Nova

I want to put a 255/60x15 tire in the rear of my 66 Nova. Anyone out there that has fitted this combo? Any clearance problems? What offset wheel did you use? Thanks

I have, on a stock 15 X 7 rally wheel from a Monte Carlo, they were pretty well centered in the wheelwell and had "enough" room but no extra. A friend has 235/60-15's on 15 X 7 rally wheels on his '66 and they have plenty of room. It depends partly on the tire brand though as not all 255's are exactly the same.
