I found this picture online and like the wheel/tire setup. It says it has 15x7 wheels, but no info on the tires.
Any guess on size's?

I run 235x70 on the rear and 215x70 on the front of my 63. 15x7 on the rear and 15x6 on the front.

I was thinking 245/60 front and 255/60 rear. Would that be doable. I am afraid 275's will be too close to touching.

they will fit with 4" of backspacing on 15x8 wheels.

I actually have a set sitting in my garage that were on my car for about 700 miles, so I speak from experience.

I ended up moving to 255/45r18s on the front and 295/45r18s on the back.

300 treadwear fronts and 200 in the rear.
