    18s and higher are too much wheel for the early cars. The body lines just aren't made for huge wheels.

    I think 17s should be out of the question unless you have big disc brakes and an agressive look to match the large wheels. Otherwise, it looks cartoonish.

    20s are useless and look ridiculous.

    That might be a good idea, I think the original thread where you did post that pic is toast....

    OK, here's a pic of the 70 with 18" chrome bullit's.

    rims are 18"x9", tires are 245/40/18's

    Picture was taken of the car at factory ride height. I'm in the process of lowering her about 1.5"

    Yes, there is 5" of backspacing (5.95b/s with 1" spacer).

    However, I think a little more backspacing would be better. 5.5" would be best IMHO. I had a hard time finding spacers less than 1" and when I did find them everyone wanted a premium. So eventually I just bought some cheap 1" spacers locally...

    Rears would have worked fine with the 6" of backspacing. It's only the fronts that needed spacers, and you could probably get by with only a .25" spacer on the fronts.
