Here’s a chart from Speedway that may help.

I went with 15in radials on my ‘41 (and new rims) this lowered the car about an inch.

I think some people run 215 70 16 tires.
I have 4 Bridgestone Ecopia 195-85-16 without tubes on wide fives. They work great but they don’t make that size anymore. Wide fives don’t have a safety bead on the inside of the rim so having the correct pressure is important.
