225/70/15 will be way to tall.

Here's a picture of my car with 225/50/15's on all 4 corners.

Mine sit pretty snug in the wheel well but I think it looks real good I.M.O. They definately should work with your car. Also Ty for the comment about my car.....Yours is actually my dream car. I want a fastback SO bad. But gl with the wheels. What kind of rims you getting?
