Found another option American Racing Torq Thrust D (yea, I know, curved spokes....but in the black spoke finish it isn't as noticeable) on sale. The size options:

15x6 3.66" bs (would these work and look decent on the front?)

15x7 3.75 bs (not again!)

15x8 4.5 bs (would these fit on the rear?)

sorry for all the questions ! I really appreciate the answers !

Pic of my car as it currently sits. I agree the TTD's with black centers would certainly look better. However, these wheels are only temporary on my car.

Ive heard this song before and i dont get it.
I have 14X8 with 3.75 BS. VERY CENTERED. Only problem I ever had was when I put the rear 235/60 on the front, only rubbing was turning and bump at the same time, that was a pre-drop check.
My calculated eyeball guess is that I could run 245's on the rear.

After you shop for decent 15" tires this episode will pale in comparison and you'll wish you had bought 16" TTDs to begin with
If youre in a hurry, call the junkyard for some Explorer or Ranger steel spares. 14", 15" or 16" will do.

The only time my fronts rub is turning and dipping at the same time...like into the driveway. If I go slow they don't rub then.

As I already said I have the 15x6 on the front of my 65 so yes it will fit and look great. The 15x7 is a better fit on the rear over the 15x8. I narrowed my rear end a little to get a better fit with the 15x8. I would use a 205-65-15 0r a 215-60-15 on the front with a 225-60-15 on the rear with the 15x7. Just my opinion.

May not help much, but I have the 15x7 SS wheels with 4.25" backspace. Tires in the picture are 215/60-15 all around. Later lowered the rear and put 245/60-15s on. Had to roll fender lips, it was snug.
