I wouldn't just be thinking about it, it would be getting done. What a difference compared to what it looks like now. Would be a great winter project for you.

This week, I'm going to mock up one side with black construction paper and an electrical tape stripe to see how it looks on this car.

Here's the reason for 17" wheels. I don't know if it's kosher to shorten that spacer .....

As light as the car color is, I prefer a little darker wheel. More contrast.

I still think those wheels look like a restomods 17 inch version of the originals from back in the day.
