69 staggered 17"F and 18"R

I'm considering putting 17" rims up front and 18" in the rear on my 69. It seems most people put the same diameter on front and back which looks good but does anyone have pics of a 17"F/18"R combination on a '69? I've surfed a bunch of posts and links etc. and having no luck. I've seen them on 67 and 68's and 18"F/19"R and bigger but no 17"/18".

I have 18's all the way around, but this might give you an idea of perhaps what you are looking for. I have 18's with 9.5 wide tires. Wheels are 5.5 off set. Stance is lowered 3" in rear and 2" in front.

Re: 69 staggered 17"F and 18"R

Thanks for these. Jason, your '68 confirms a staggered look works great on first gen bodies. It looks like a lot of thought went into your car and it's paid off! Love the color with white stripes and tire/wheel combination, well done! Lots of car shows in Jersey, hope to see it in person some day.
Thanks 69&76 for the perfect profile shot. Great ride and explains why I struggle with deciding on rim size. Looks awesome. The lowering details are just as important and you got it nailed. I lowered my '69 with a Hotchkis 1.5"F & 2"R kit but not low enough for me. What's your set up?

I have 2" on the front. I started with 2" springs on rear, but it was still too high. I had to add 1"block to get it to sit as it does. It rides just fine. I had to roll one of the rear fenders. The front tires will rub if I turn the wheel to full capacity, otherwise front is fine as well.
