    I put 17’s on the 65 in part for all the choices for wheels and tires. First time I ever bought anything over 15”, but I’m happy with the look and ride. Now I’m used to it and my 14” road wheels look puny.

    Looking good there. Nice red with a great T/R combo to match! Most folks want more tire side wall when choosing a combo. On the 65-68 a wheel up to 16 inches will provide a decent amount of side wall and still look more like a hot rod. 17&18 would likely give the car a protouring look considering the car isn't lifted and mud tires are installed lol.

    16" Also look good as well but tires are getting hard to find so 17's are the way to go

    Hey guys and gals.............I have 255/60/15 on the back of my 66 Skylark. I am old school, I want the widest I can put on her without rolling the wells. I love the "steamroller" look, that's what everyone had when I was a teenager. I have air shocks on the rear, of course I love the high rear rake! I think the wheels are an 8". What would the widest tire I could fit, and what backspace. I'm open to a wider wheel. Thanks in advance!!!
