    I wouldnt know why you couldnt go with a 17x8, you can probably even get a 245/45/17 tire under the rear.

    I ran 16x8 4 1/2" backspace American racing Salt Flats on all 4 corners of my 64.Stock ride hight and suspension. Only rear rubbed with (outside) on the passanger side with 4 200+ pounders in the car. 17's should be fine. 8" is as wide as I would go.

    I hear ya!:icon_hang: Big wheels and thin rubber just don't look right on vintage cars. Especially the old pre 68' stuff. I vote to keep with the 15".

    Thanks, It was a very fun project where everything went pretty smoothly.Only thing I hated was the original single muffler exhaust system. Head pipe gaskets kept blowing out due to excessive backpressure.

    Chris, where did you get that repro battery? Also, where did you get the sticker on the glovebox door? That car is BEAUTIFUL!
