Anyone running American VN477 Wheels?

I'm still intrigued with the thought of running 16" rims or possibly a 16/17 staggered setup if I could find some that I like and that would fit. Came across these, wondered if anyone is running them on a 69 Camaro?

16/17 is tough due to limited availability in tires that will work.

Yes, limited with 16's and less so with 17's. A lot of different tires/sizes available for 18's, but if you don't want to run that large a wheel diameter, shop tires first in the size and model you want and let that dictate the wheel diameter you buy unless you are set on a specific wheel diameter. I ran into this with my 17's, but had no problem getting tires the size I wanted, just not the specific model/tread pattern tire. I wanted a bit more sidewall and wanted to stick with the 17's and not go up to 18's and the more limited tire selection was a consequence.
