It depends on if you are upgrading suspension , and how you want the vehicle to handle and look. Slightly larger and wider tires for the rear , and smaller thinner tires for the front are what I prefer. I would go 70 series , or 65 series for the front and 50's for the rear . Size depends on how tall you want the tires to be , and how much room you have. 255/50/15 for rear , and 235/65/15 for the front tires ( that's just off the top of my head, but it gives you an idea ) Tire shops will have basic measurements of the size of the tire ( height, and width ) from there you can calculate what will look good .

I always put big and wide (not too big and wide) on the back and small and skinny on the front (not too skinny on the front). It gives it a mean stance and helps with driveability.
