Wheel & Tire Combo help
My 67 is a base model car, nantucket blue, with a six banger. I thought about building it into a hot rod but have decided to keep the body, paint, etc to look factory original, while adding a set of subframe connectors, a warmed over small block, a 700r4 transmission, and a stout rearend. This way it will look original, and sound and perform like a street strip car.
My car still has the factory 14 in steel wheels. I am wandering what wheels/tires to use in order to look factory, yet provide good traction and perform better on the street. I don't think rally wheels look good on a base model car, so I would rather not go with those. I do like the painted steel wheel look with the dog dish caps, but don't know where to buy a wider rear tire, what size wheels tires to get. Has anyone done something similar and do you have pictures? Thanks guys.
