Default 13x6 Minilite wheel question

Does anyone have a tire size recommendation for 13x6 Minilite wheels? These wheels are slated for my project car and performance is not a concern at this point. My goal is an economy based tire that fits the wheels nicely. I recognize there are not many choices so any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.

13x 6 a 185/70 would suit the car well.

What offset are the wheels you will be running ? Need to make sure the fronts don't catch the bottom of the valence

Thanks for the quick reply. I will need to check the offset.

I'm running 205/60 on a 5.5 inch rim- never had any issues. Kirk
