    Specs? Both wheels and tires.

    I agree with Gary. Keep the original stock wheels. The way most people are now changing these cars, the original look is becoming unique!

    All due respect to folks who go over 17", but keep it under 17" if you go non-stock.

    17" seems to be the cutoff point at which the tire sidewall profile gets too small for the body lines on these early muscle cars IMHO...

    Granted, this may come from a personal bias after having run my 17" Zr1 style wheels since ~1998. But that's just my $.02....

    Either stock or period correct slots or five spokes imho
    my setup:
    Keystone Klassics 15x7 front 15x8 rear
    235/60R15 front and 275/60R15 rears
    rears are just flush and neither rub at lock or over large bumps and great rake!!! IMG_5478.jpg IMG_5477.jpg IMG_5474.jpg
