Re: what kind of wheels

IMHO the 'torq-thrust-D' is the best looking wheel out there for a bit of a performance look, and are period correct for these cars. If youre going heavy custom, with wheel tubs/radical lowering, then the big 18+ inchers look really cool, but to me on a mild street car, torq-thrust-D always seem to look right.

Confidence: that feeling you have just before you realize the mess you've gotten yourself into...

Go to the Galaxie club website, www.galaxieclub.com and from there go to international show and scroll down to 1964, might see some good lookin wheels there.
