Anyone run 18" wheels on 66-67 GTO ??

Anyone running an 18 inch wheel on their 66-67 gto ?? I just like the look of a full wheel well with tire. If so...what's the biggest tire you can get away with ...without any modifications ?? Also thinking of 18 rear and 15 front...Cragars of course !! Thanks ..

235/60-15 donuts. Wheel well filled nicely. The lower sidewall ht of an 18" is going to make for a rough ride. My wife drives a '13 Infinti M with 20's. Stiff sport suspension. I wondered why the stiff ride didn't seem to bother her until I realized her bra took care of that. You can Google 1967 GTO 18 inch wheels and see some cars with them.

It doesn't have nitrous. It has cubic inches.

irish I have learned with a similar post that understandably the old timers hate the bigger wheels while the middle age guys are about 50/50 and the young bucks love them bigger. Im in the middle and went with 18x8 front and 18x9 rear. I like the look but also like the original ralley 1 wheels.
