Love Cragars!!! Have since 1965 when I was a teen and could not afford them for my '54. But now my '68 GTO runs Cragar S/S: 14x7 in front, 15x8 in the rear, love them!!

If you're looking for 66 factory correct, rally 1's are a good choice; I like Cragars as well!

Beyond the OEM wheel, ET, American, or any number of "as cast" 5 spoke wheels that were around in the mid/late 60s. Another great choice, Ansen Sprints. The aluminium slots that many painted the inner edge of the slot in the wheel to match or off set the car color. Remember, I'm a "day 2" type guy so take it with a grain, or a lb(!), of salt...
