wheel/tire size options for my 75 '02

I am currently rolling on some 14'' bottle caps with 205 60 r14 tires that most likely came directly off of an e30. "problem" they are why too big and stupid looking and hit the wheel wells or fenders if I hit a speed bump and turn.

My goal is to get the widest yet smallest rim size & tires that can fit Bridgestone/Firestone/Fuzion Low profile tires. I am religious about my tires and Bridgestone is the only way I roll. Potenza's kick ass.

I don't want to encounter the problem of having too wide of an offset where i rub on the outside edge of the fenders with my factory non adjustable camber settings in the back, and don't want to rub when steering full radius's either.

Can anyone tell me what wheels would be best for me and my tires that aren't but ugly and possibly have gold or bronze spokes in them?

keep the rubberside down

I run Bridgestone Potenza's G009 195/60-14 on my lowered 74 tii (Eibach's, Bilstein sports) with E30 BBS basketweaves with no problems (unless I have it at full lock and enter a steep driveway). Do a forum search, lots on info in the past on this same subject
