Default Staggered tire size for 16" wheels

I am going to be bolting up some 16" wheels to my 76 242. The fronts are 7.5" wide and the rears are 8.5" wide. I want to keep the overall diameter similar to stock so for the rear tires I am thinking 225/50/R16. I can't decide if I should just put the same size up front or maybe a little skinnier 205/55/R16. Also I have manual steering so I am worried that the wider tires up front might make parking tricky. The car is stock height now but I plan on lowering it in the future. Does anyone have any advice?
