I had 245/50/16s on my GT. Smaller diameter than stock, but much wider. Handled great but it was hard to steer and park with quick steering arms in spite of power steering. Biggest issue I had was some slight wheel well rub on right rear lip on hard right cornering. Hawks have the drive train shifted slightly off center to the right, so watch clearance on that side. I recently switched to 225/65/16 Toyo U900 Z tires and I'm really liking them.

On my '63 GT I also have 15 x 7 rims with 235/70R15. A very slight bit of fender lip massaging as mentioned in post#2 and you are good to go. They really fill the fenders, look good and handle great.

265-75R 15 on 8" wheels. But you have to weld the wheel centers into the wheel outters to get the backspacing just right so as to not have any tire rub.

If you want white walls, you'll need to buy them from Diamondback Classics.
