I am about to replace the 36 year old front springs. I have already upgraded to a 5 leaf in the rear. What I need to know is what would be the best wheels for my car, preferably in a 16" rim? I know that there is tons of info on this subject, so I have literally spent hours looking over all the posts; truthfully I think I am more confused than when I started. So I am asking for some opinionated (I mean that in a good way) and experienced people to just tell me what works. I sure as heck won't argue. My criteria are:
67 Camaro. Stock height 5 leafs, 1" drop on the front springs, drum brakes all around, traction bars. Stock everything else (fenders aren't rolled, shocks are in stock location, etc.). I don't care if the rims are moderately different from front to back, within reason. I don't want to rub, so I don't need to push every tolerance. I am just looking for a decently wide, time-tested combo that I can safely purchase and not look back.
I have no experience with custom wheels, and need to lean on you guys for this one. I would really appreciate the help, as always.
