I am putting disk brakes on my 69 and need to use bigger wheels. I am thinging of 15x8 mag 500's. Or should I use 15X7 up front? The car has standard springs etc. It sets about 2 inches lower in the front because of the engine change.(BB) A frend has some 16"ARW wheels for sale cheap. I dont like the look of the 17" and 18" on the old cars. Question. Would the 16's look out of place on this car. (car looks stock except for hood) Also Should I hold off on ordering the rear wheels till I find out what rear end I use. Or will 15X8 with 4.5 back space fit most of the housings I find. (9" rear. Thanks Lyle

15 x 8 will work with a short tire. I would not order any rears until you get your rear end finihsed. :0
