Depending on the type of wire you need 4 gauge for aluminum wire and 6 gauge for copper wire. Aluminum wire is the least expensive of the two but copper disapates heat better.

Depends on various factors such as temperature, indoor/outdoor, exposure to light, gasoline, etc. Also depends on type of wire used, will the wire be run through conduit? If so it needs to be THHN. The most commonly used wire for this would be #6 AWG THHN copper, rated for 65 amps. Get an electrical code book to be certain.

#6 should work just fine, however #4 is more common and probly alot easier to find and get connectors for.
