Hey folks, need some advise

Here's the scoop... '53 f-100... ford 9" hung on ladderbars and coil overs in the rear... soon to be Mustang II IFS in front. I've got 15x10 Prime wheels on back with 295x50x15 BFG TA Radials... My front rims are 15x8 and they're still in the box but soon to be mounted...

I'm trying to decide what a good front tire size would be to go with the 295's in the back.. the 295's have a height of 26.5 inches and 11 inches wide..

Anyone have any suggestions or locations for finding tire sizes with heights/widths etc... I've looked in a lot of mags, and a lot are running 31" MTs on rear and tiny tires on front or the same on all four corners or 17-20" rims...

I want something that will fill the fender opening well, look proportionate to the 295's and ride well ??? help ???

I put the 215/70 15's on the front of my 53, with some older h60s on the rear. The h60s are 9.5" tread width about 27" tall. I think it looks pretty good. I didn't want to go too big or too small with the front. Too small looks lost and too big looks like the big truck tires.
