My 68 convertible came with 14" wheels and hubcaps from the factory but I bought some 15 X 7 rallys to put on. Does anyone know of any reason why these would not fit. Car is all stock with no mods.

The "wheels" will fit fine. You make no mention of the size tires you will be mounting...the higher and wider you go, the more risk of rubbing.

Thanks,
Can anyone reccommend a good tire size for these wheels, that will not rub but will look nice and meaty on the road?

Most folks can run 245 or 255 60's on rear, 225 or 235 on front. If you want equal size around a good size is 235's all the way around for a meaty look. Do a search on the site..the size question has been beat back and forth for years now. Jee Kz, just beat me to it

IF YA GOT THE FACTORY STOCK SUSPENSION I RECOMMEND YOU PUT A PAIR OF 235/60 ON THE FRONT WHEELS , THEN CHECK ALL CLEARANCES & IF OK LEAVE AS IS & INTALL 245 ON OTHER PAIR!! IF RUBBING OCCURS THEN PUT THAT PAIR OF 235 /60 ON THE REAR OF CAR OF WHEELS & THEN INSTALL 225/60 ON THE OTHER PAIR & INSTALL THEM ON FRONT.

I put some cooper cobras on the look and ride great, this tire is a "handling type tire" really grabs the road.
