Default I bought some 15x8 wheels, need a little advice

I bought some 15x8 aluminum wheels off my neighbor for $100!! 3.75 backspace -19mm offset. My 90 2wd HB is bone stock. I kinda like the old school look with the wheels sticking out a bit. Will I have any rubbing issues in the front when I turn? Im thinking of buying a 195 205 or even a 215 size tire. I cant decide I just want something for my DD. Im thinking of lowering my truck around 2 inches but for now its stock. What tires do you guys think will look ok on these wheels?

IMO a 195/50r15 or a 185/55r15 looks good, both have a small stretch on a 8inch rim..i have ran both these sizes on a low static truck. hope that may help
