I used to use 205-60-15 on the front of my manual steering cars. Yes, it make the steering heavy at low speeds and parking. But it's not horrible. You'll need to trim the rear wheel well edge at the rear to clear those tires. 225 is a nice size on these cars but usually needs a bit of trimming in the back.
