I run 225/70-15 in the front and 235/70-15 in the rear. I like a taller tire since I put 150+ miles per day on my elky. The taller tire gives me a more comfortable ride. Take a look. Land vehicle Vehicle Car Sedan Rim

The rear will rub on the fender. I have tried 295/50's, 275/60's and they both rub. You can use 255/60 but you won't have the tire height. I believe trannymike uses the 255/60 on the rear of his and it looks great. I also pull a 16' welding trailer so I don't really need any wide tires. My car is a cruiser not a canyon carver. The sticky that billyjack has on the forum is very helpful. If you have a chance you should read it.
