What size rims are you wanting to run? Are you wanting the original look or more fancy? Are you lifting the car or lowering it, or keeping it stock height?

I may go a little wider than stock. I'm planning on lowering the back end about two inches. I was thinking black Crager rims.

I always liked original Pontiac 5 spoke Rallye wheels on mine. I painted them black.

I ran 275-60-15's in the back, 255-60-15's on the front.

In this picture, which is crappy quality, I have those Pontiac Rallyes on in black:


I really like 16" wheels on these cars with lower profile tires (255-50-16) as far as handling goes, especially the 4-doors with the front and rear police anti-sway bars. (255-50-16)
