What size tires to go with?

Hi Guys
I am getting ready to buy tires soon for my 1967 camaro. I have a set of 14" rallyes on it now and I want a bigger tire. I have a set of, (15"X 6 and 15" X 7 American Racing Torq-Thrust rims that I would like to use. But I am not sure how big of a tire I can safely place on the 7" rims. I would like as wide and high rubber as I can get under the back. Clearance is not a problem for it was a drag car and I had 10" American racing wheels and slicks on before. I would use the 10" rims again but the match for the front rims are only 4 1/2" wide so I do not think I can get a tire wide enough for the road on them. Thanks for the help.

I like the 3754R. The section width of 11.00 and tread of 9.50 good choice. What would you place on the front? I do not have much room in the front what would you go with? I think something shorter like a 145X70 15 should fit. Thanks for the reply.
