What looks good is up to the owner of the car. We can only show what we have and then its up to you

BFG 225-60-15 front
BFG 255-60 15 rear

They are 15 " Rally wheels ( 3" trim ring) with a 4.25 back space. My 225 on front rub now and then but a 215 front would be perfect!

I like the rally's or cragar ss the "ol' school look" I have 275 60 15. I am not into the hot wheel blingy look but that is why there is chocolate vanilla and strawberry each to their own taste as said earlier. I think the new zr-1 looks and the new camaro look great with the 22's etc though but not the 60's car. That coming from an old dog.

15x7 w/3.76BS, 225/60 up front, 245/60 in back. I would probably go 255 in rear next time.

I am running BFG 245-60-15 on the rear and 235-60-15 up front on Vette 8" rallys with the short caps and I get a lot of positive comments. . . .on my 69 RSSS vert. I too am old school on the wheels and don't care for the rubber band tire look. . . .having said that the old school RWL tires are becoming scarce and the BFG RWL was bought out by coker and the price is reflective of that!
