Fronts are 205-65-15s with 4in. backspace and 7in. wide
Back Qt. lips have been rolled in a little (maybe 1/4 in.)
front has been lowered about 1.0 to 1.5in.

:think: I would guess that the tire/wheel combination you listed above would fit, but the only way to know for certain is to, well, you know...
:dontknow:
Here are some numbers I came up with for my 1966 Corsa...

Current Tire Product and Size:
Front: Goodyear Eagle ST P195/70 R14
Overall Diameter: 24.8" Revs per Mile: 839 Sect. Width: 7.9" Tread Width: 6.1"
Rear: Goodyear Eagle ST P235/60 R14
Overall Diameter: 25.1" Revs per Mile: 829 Sect. Width 9.5" Tread Width 8.7"

UNTESTED — FOR PLANNING PURPOSES THESE WOULD SEEM TO WORK...
Size: 225/55ZR16 with 8" rims and 4.0" backspacing.

Alternates... known good sizes for 1965-1969 Corvair
16x7 Torque Thrust II wheels
205-55/zr16 BFGoodrich tires
