Hi there Everyone! Well I have a bit of a dilema, its time to upggrade to some better wheels. Im considering the Intro Pentia wheels for my '68. The problem is the wheel sizes i cant decide whether to go 17"s all around or 17" front 18" rear? or 18" all around? ive seen camaros with all those setups but i cant decide which is best... any pros or cons? all help is greatly appreciated
thanx

I am currently waiting on my 18 in Budnik Hammers to be delivered. Picked up my Nitto 555's today. No regrets, with the bigger opening on a 67 in the rear an 18 looks trick. I went 275/40 and 235/40. You could go 17 up front to make it more aggressive but mine is already lowered so I didnt' need to.

DREID I am positive that you will love your Nitto 555's. I have a buddy that has them on his supercharged mustang and they are the hardest gripping street tire around. THey are just as good as any drag radial and you will get more life out of them.

Both are nice,It is your personal taste. Either way the overal diamiter of the rim and tire will remain about the same.The difference is an inch. If the inch is in the rim, the car will handle A bit quicker. If the inch is in the sidewall of the tire the car will ride a bit smoother. That is why I asked you how are your roads. Either way the car will be smokin.Good luck. Brian

Hey Guys! Thanks alot for the feedback...greatly appreciated. BRIAN the roads arent bad, there are few potholes. I think im goin with the 17" front and 18" rear, it should give it the aggressive look that DREID was talking about. I plan on lowering it but i want to get the wheels first. Well thanks again
