Arrow What kidn of wheels should I get????????

Hello members, I hope you all are doing well. I just joined and I was reffered by a nice camaro member, terrance, who saw my 67 SS and told me to join. Look like a great website. Anyways, I sold my 67 a while back and it had the 17" Cragar SS wheels and I just bought a solid black 69 SS and i was wodnering what wheel choices i have to put ont his car and where can i get them??? I know I can get the TT 2', but since Ive had the cragar I would liek to see what other wheels are out there that look good ont hese cars. I want preferbaly 17 or 18's. Also, aftre I get these wheels I will haeva set of 15 wide centerline wheels for sale. Any help would be helpful. Thanks and if you can provide me with the widest set-up I can go with rubbing issues on these wheels with the backspacing I would appreciate it. Thanks members

Crager wheels are always nice. TT2' are very popular and seem to be on a lot of the cars. In my area everyone had Cragers so I went with the TT2's. My car is Black also.

Re: What kidn of wheels should I get????????

I went with a set of Billet Specialties "Street Stars" 17x8 4.75bs on front and 17x9.5 5.5bs on rear. On Billet's website they had them for $371 a wheel. I got them from Newstalgia Wheel for $290. I also went with the Nitto 555's for tires. I would highly encourage anyone looking for great deals and outstanding customer service to contact Howard Cook @ Newstagia Wheel

Try Intro wheels. They are custom made in California and a bit pricey but are awesome looking. I have the 17 inch Sport Gt's on my 67 and love them.

Re: What kidn of wheels should I get????????

I'll second the kudos for newstalgia. I bought a set of AR Hopsters and Kumho tires from them and am very pleased with the service. They will also work with you to get something they normally don't stock, if needed.
