74 911 wheel sizes

Can anyone recomend an upgraded wheel/tire size for a 74 911 that will be slightly lowered?
Thanks

I put on 15 X 7 Fuch's all around but they are getting harder and harder to find.
What have you got on her now?

15 x 6/7 Fuchs are stock
15 x 7/8 Fuchs work well with 225/50 all around or 245/50 rear
16 x 6, 7 or 944T 8 inch front Fuchs will work on the front
16 x 7, 8 911 8s are better, 944T 8s will work, or 9 Fuchs
Aftermarket 17 x 8/9 work well w/235/255 and look good

But...if it's lowered to "euro" height ....all bets are off, without welding on "SC" flares or if it was originally a "Carrera" .....
