1971 rebuild!!

Hi there,

I own a 1971 Pontiac LeMans, with a 1969 GTO Front End.. The car was equipped with a a chevy 454 ci engine, and the interior is basically destroyed..
Currently the car is stripped from everything, and is being painted at the bodyshop, while the engine is being rebuild..

The block is now changed to a 454 ci marine engine, stock heads, Comp Cams K-Kit, Edelbrock 2.0 Performer Intake Manifold, Holley 750 cfm carb., custom 1.75" Longtube Headers, and a magnaflow exhaust...

The tranny is a TH 400..
Stock Gears & torque converter..
KYB shocks..
OPGI 2" springs all around..

The only thing i need help on is the wheels, what set of wheels do u guys recommend?? nothing over 17" plz...

Thanks
