Tire size

Is this a good driving combination and nice looking combination on the Mustang Mach1 1973?
I have those rims already, but is this tires combination good and is the speedometer still works correctly?

MAGNUM 500 WHEEL 15" X 8" 255/60R15

Thanks and greetings from Belgium,

Those sizes will perform well. Get a GPS speedometer ap for a smart phone and determine how much the speedometer is off. Mine is off by exactly 10%. 50 is actually 55... etc.

nice looking!
But don't you feel that chrome wheels would look even better?

Rims are 8 inch all 4?
So tires are not rubbing anywhere and run good?
