Anyone know if there will be any rubbing issues?

That size will come closest to the original 7.50X14 bias ply.
205s look a little skimpy.

I have just ordered a set of 215/75x14 Diamond Backs for my 1960 Impala convertible. I'll let you know! I am told the convertible originally ran on 8.00 x 14's, which is one size wider than the saloons.

On my 58' Bel Air I have 245/60 R15 with 15X7 3.75 backspace wheels. The only time they rubbed was with the stock front drum brakes, that went away when I upgraded to disc brakes.
