I'm talking about the old 12 holes, just to clarify. My rear tires are looking pretty bald, and I'd like to go as wide as possible and maybe try to keep the wheelspin down just a tad. How wide can I go with meats on the back of this thing?

Grrr... that's what I was afraid of. Probably next summer when I have some money, I'm going with 15x6 Torq thrusts in the front and 15x8.5 in the rear. Can't wait to get some decent meats on the back of this thing.

On my 68, am using style wheels from a 70.For want of a better description, they have slots similar to an early Corvette Rally but the caps are same as 68. They are 14x7. They look good and take more tire. The only other ones I've seen were on cars featured in MMonthly and on Glazier's web site.
