60" is what I have if you have 205/70's
58" would work. There your back to 50/50 again

We run a 58" on our car (I-stock), but we can't run a 4" off on the right rear without a spacer and even then it still rubs a little on the frame. I would probably go with a 60" if it was me. It depends I would think also on what types of tracks you are going to be running. I would think that a smaller track (3/8 or lower) I would go with a 58" to increase sidebite and tighten the car. If I was running anything bigger than a 3/8 track I would probably go with a 60".

the metric originally had a 58 inch wide rear end , so it would depend on how the rules are stated if it has to be stock width then 58 inch if not the 60 inch would be more versatile

also the front is only 58 inches wide too so a 60 inch could make the rear wider than the front depending on your wheel selection

My old car was 58" and the new car is 60".

I prefer the 58".
