Anybody running 255/60/15s on a 65/66?

I've got that size in a differrent tire on my 68. I had rubbing issues until I rolled the fender lips. Now it only rubs if I go over one heck of a bump. Also, the backspacing will help you determine fitment. Mine is 3.75 inches. 4.5 would be perfect. Another thing to consider is that your speedometer will be off.
I just recently got 5 leaf mid-eyes that are supposed to drop the rear 1 in. My thoughts are it will stay the same height and slightly stiffen it because the old springs are probably sagging.

as it is now

But you have more room in your 68 than I do on my 65.

the axle widths are different, but the space in the wheel well should be the same

backspacing is the most important factor - it is a pretty tall tire compared to stock, but if it is tucked in under the fender lip, you should be alright.
