I ordered new rims for my '67 GTO tonight!
I kept going back and forth between the Year One Rallye II's or the US Mags Bandits, and I went with the Bandits. I went with 17 X 8 and 17 X 9's. I am going to build this car for to handle, brake, and drive well, but I'm keeping a ride height and small enough brakes to still bolt up 15" tires and look stock when I want to. It is an advantage that these cars sat low from the factory. I have a set of 15" Rallye II's, but I may get a set of steelies and paint them when I paint the car and get a set of repro poverty caps and a set of Coker Red Lines to put on the car to go shows, etc. My goal is toi build a stock appearing car on the body, interior, and under the hood that doesn't handle and brake like a 46 year old car.
These are the rims I ordered. I'm going to put a Pontiac cap on them and use red center lug nuts to help make the red fender liners pop a little. I'll be waiting a kid for Christmas to come until they get here! -lol
