Question Any pics of 17" rally wheels on a 69?

I'm looking at getting some bigger tires on my 69. It has rally wheels which I love, but I'd love to see how they look in 17". Wondering if they would look funny with lower profile tires.

Let me know what you've got to show!

I wonder what size tires....

I'm thinking 245/50's all around. I don't want crazy rubber, I want it to look stock-ish, but just a little more modern.

17 inch rallys just don't look right on a 69 Camaro. JMO. Rally style I wouldn't go more than 16 inch. I know the performance tire choices aren't much in the 15 and 16 inch size. Unless you're road racing, who cares? Form follows function.

I also really like the white letter tires, and I don't think BFG makes them on anything larger than 16"?

But I can't seem to find 16". I see plenty of 15" and 17"

I run 225/50 in front and 255/50 in the rear on my 17" set of wheels.
Think 225/50 is similar to stock and the 255 is for that mean muscle car appearance! .....but I have the AR 200S wheels!
