Looking to change the wheels on my GTO. The car has factory PB up front and drums rear. I am installing a new 4-wheel disc brake kit with everything from the master cylinder to the lugnuts.

I'd like to go with 15", and am looking for a more aggressive tire/wheel option.

Thanks in advance for your pics, tire/rim recommendations and tips.

I have a '68 GTO and have 15" Cragar S/S wheel all around, 6" front, 10" rear. I'm changing the fronts to 7" with a 225 tire instad of the 205's curently on it. Rear tires are 255-60-15. I like a retro look so this works for me.

I changed my drums to disc on my 65. The wheels were Keystone Classic 14". They fit, but by a slight margin. These Keystone's were an offset is probably why. So changed over to P235x60 15" BFG , front and back, on a zero offset wheel. Pic showing them is with the gto raised up from the wheel dollys.

Cragars on a goat are forever!

15x7 - 215/65r15 front & 15x8 - 235/60r15 back
Disc brakes front - drum rear
Exactly the look Iam trying to receive, I bought 66 Gto black, restored but the dummies put 18 in tires on, looks ok but front tires rub and I want more of a classic look, chrome all the way. Wider on back just for looks or did you have a reason. Thanks, once again Beaty car....

I prefer a little more tire in back with along with more dish in the wheel. I should have ordered 5" custom backspacing in the rear so I could have run a wider tire. I used what was available. I think they were 3.25 and 3.5 BS. The fender wells on mine have never been trimmed or rolled. The current tire sizes are almost identical even though they are different widths and I can use the same spare all the way around if needed. I have a 5th Cragar and 215/65r15 for show in the trunk
