Thanks guys, not too often when I try something and it turns out better than I could imagine. I think with my color car the rims and car look awesome.

Jake, the rims are make by Weld Racing and are called Pro Star. I think Ultra Wheel makes a cheaper version and also Billet specialties makes some. Front is 15x7 with 4.5 backspace and 235/60 R15. Back is 15x8 with 5.5 backspace and 275/60 R15.

Car looks great! I do have to say that I liked the look of those Rallye style rims that were on there. Were those genuine PMD Rallye I's ?

Thanks for the kind words. And I wouldn't have any idea if they were original. They look real good, so I doubt these were on there for 45 years considering how they took care of the paint. The Ralley Is might look better with the same tires I put on, I didn't care for the redlines.
