Question New Tires

I bought this car used several months ago and now I need to replace the Goodyear Eagle HP 225/60 tires. The car still has the stock 15" fan wheels and I do not have the funds to get larger wheels. The car also has Eibach springs (that I assume are 1.5" lower) with no other mods that I know of to the suspension.

Here are the tires I am looking at:

Firestone Firehawk INDY 500 in 255/60 (235/60 if the 255/60 is too wide)
BFGoodrich Traction T/A in 225/60
Goodyear Eagle GT-HR in 225/60

I am leaning toward the INDYs because the hight would be close to stock and my speedometer will be close to correct however I am worried about the width. All three seem to have good reviews on but I would like some input from other T-Bird owners who might have used these tires.

Also, if I have to go with the 235/60 or the 225/60s, which speedometer gear do I need to get?

What does everyone else think? Please help.
