Re: Rims

Look at Newstalgia Wheel They have a good variety of wheels and some good prices to boot.

Re: Rims

Look up custom Intro wheels out of California. They are billet aluminum and have awesome styling.

Re: Rims

I just bought 2 15X8.5 and 2 15X7 American Racing Torque Thrust D rims for my 68 Camaro. I bought them from Ron's Rims and I am quite happy with the entire transaction. I wanted 'period correct' rims instead of the 'all rim/no tire' look. I was a teen in the late 60's and remember all of the cars running 14 or 15 inch rims and that is just what I have now. All I need now is a paint job and a 5 speed TKO 600 and I will be happy....for now anyhow.

I would suggest you thuroughly research what a set of those wheels or any of the super bling big suv style wheels will look like on a first gen (i assume) imho they look just plain wrong on a classic car. I would suggest something for either a performance look (billet or bmw wheel with adapters) or something vintage ttd.

For now im going with a set of takeoff competition grey c6 wheels until i can afford some billet 3 peice ones.

And lastly when going to a big wheel and tire combo if you dont do your brakes at the same time that will also add to the rediculious look factor

Thanks for the insight. I have researched. I have also done a front and rear disc brake converstion. And I do agree. I really wanted to keep the original look and feel to the car and was thinking of doing 15/16's torque thrust but i also know that seems like what everyone else is running so i was mainly wanting to be different. I guess in time i will make a final decision, one that i will be happy with.
