^^^ not bad, they look similar to a set of original 68 XR7-G Rader wheels. I'd get a different center cap emblem though. Nice car. :)

I guess I don't have a real good side view:

If I remember right, the wheels are all 17x8 w/5" backspace. The rear tires are 245/45/17 and the fronts are 235/45/17. My next front tires, I'll probably try 225 as these will rub a little when turning into a driveway, especially if you are turning into a driveway that also has an uphill to it.

The wheels are Centerline brand, Meteors.

I like 'em! Bought them off of Craigslist.

Neal, those look really good on there... Ordinarily I am not a fan of those but they look really right on your car.

@cougar2: It's supposed to be the original 1967 maroon color.
