Default Tyre choice for 5J wheels on ‘68 bug

Hey all, I’m putting some 5J 15” JBW sprinstars on a ‘68 bug. Front beam is 2” narrowed adjustable with 2.5” dropped spindles, rear is stock.

Looking to create a Cal Look stance with smaller tyres at the front, larger at the rear - I guess there must be optimal tyre size to fit the car and look good too - any ideas?

Cheers!

Alex

Just for the idea, my mexi has got 165/60 on the front and 195/65 on the back
