15" tires are everywhere. Wheels are less money as well. If you are not looking for the "ultimate" in ride or road holding, a 205/60-15 clears and rides well, and fits fine on a 7" wheel. For ride and handling, a wheel with close to stock backspace will work better. The lighter the wheel/tire assembly the easier on the shocks and springs.

I'm doing 15 in the back and 14 in the front. I looked hard to make sure I had the right offset. I like how it handles with this setup, but tire rotation is kinda limited to occasional swaps.
