A possibility is to run a P235/60-15 in front and a P245/60-15's in back. I would take it to a tire shop and try different ones

How low are you going with the ride height? the 60's are +/-26" tall simular to the stock 195/75/14's & 215/65/15's, are more forgiving with the lower height. The 70's being taller may rub up front depending on the ride height.
