Welcome to the Team!

I am of the opinion that classic cars need classic wheels. Not dish wheels found on a shag rug walled mural painted van from the seventies.

Love it. Good work. I agree with Dave. Nothing better than classic wheels and white letter tires...on a classic.

+1 on the torque thrusts. Gives it an edgier, tougher look. Glad you didn't go 17s or bigger. You could've gone a bit wider in the rear tires but 245s are good all around and you can actually rotate.

put those other wheels on a trailer :)

Had some knock offs of the Crager SS wheels on my 64 back in the 80's. They looked cool with some black wall Nitto tires (I forget how wide, but they were fairly wide). But they tended to cause vibration. I suppose it was because they were cheap knock offs with oval shaped bolt holes. But they did give a sporty look to the 64, which is not easy, since it is perhaps the least sporty looking of the 58-64 series.
