New guy here

Postby JavaGreen » Wed Jan 18, 2017 7:44 pm

I'm Jeremy from Cincinnati. Here's my '67...5 inch beam, drop spindles, stock 1500. Planning on some aftermarket wheels this spring, still undecided on what though. Tell me what you think!

Nice car!
I'd at least paint the center of the wheels black like original for the time being, give it a little contrast. Just about any wide 5 wheel will look good on there, except those god awful aluminium sprint star copies or the equally bad fake Fuchs with the machined looking spokes. Puke.

Car looks good in the pic. How about a nice side shot so everyone can tell you what you should do.....all of which you should ignore and do what feels right for you. Smile

You want wheel sugestions?

I've been thinking 65 mustang wheels would look good on a bug. 15" x 6" should fit

They have all kinds of reproduction chrome/steel muscle car wheels available now. Check out cokers store.

Good looking car. =D> I like the way Franz thinks! No to the 17's :-& but that's just my opinion.
