17s or 18s

I am thinking of getting a set of 17 or 18 inch wheels on my '71

could those of you that have a 1970-72 with 17s or 18s post some pics with wheel and tire sizes to help me deside what to do?

These are 17s. Looks good from this angle.

I've seen enough 17's to decide they look OK. There is still enough sidewall on the tire to look good. 18's and up look like they have rubber binders mounted on them...
