66 convertible wheels and tires

I need to know the biggest size for a 66 with stock suspension.
All i am doing is front disc brakes, sway bar, and adjustable front shocks and maybe rear control arms however everything else may remain. I am looking for 18" wheels since i want the most meat on the tires possible. Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.

The huge diameter wheels have no sidewall, but not necessarily any more 'meat' down ant the tread than a decent 50 or 60 series radial tire in a more conventional diameter. I draw the line at 15 inchers, and think 16 inchers look 'ok', but anything bigger looks 'wrong' on these cars, in my old-man opinion. Check out the Ultimate GTO PIcture Site for cars with various wheels, and elsewhere online, to get a good idea of what you want and can actually use. Wheels and tires are expensive, and you want to make the most informed choice you can. Good luck.
