My GTO is a '68 but it has Cragar S/S 15" wheels. In my opinion your '70 would look great with them. Unlike the '70, the '68 does not have the "eyebrows" over the wheel wells but I don't believe it would change the look much. Here are some pics of my '68.

Beautiful ride. I too like the look of the Crager's but just hope that someone with a 70 will post a picture so I can make my decision. I also like keeping all my cars original so am really torn on this issue. Since I can't seem to find any "original" 14" wheels, only 15's or larger, I don't know of any other options. Hopefully others will join in on the discussion.

Had Cragar SS on my '69 GTO & '68 Bird bracket cars, back in the late '70's.

Stan,
Got out to the garage and checked her out. Currently I'm running tires and wheels (Cragar S/S) from the last owner.

On the rear, currently it's a Radial T/A, size 255-60-15.

On the front, currently it's a Radial T/A, size 215-70-14. I plan to get 15" Cragars for the front (15x7) and mount Radial T/A's, size 225-60-15 (which should give me more caliper clearance.)

Hopefully this is helpful.

Cragar SS's look killer on ANY musclecar, period, IMO. But they gotta be 14 or 15 inchers!! Musclecars need to have sidewalls, not rubber bands!
