which wheels?

Anyone recommend a set wheels to put on a 67 mustang? I have the old touring tires with wire hubcaps that I want to get rid of and put some Mags or something on. The rims I have now are 14X7, should I go with 15s'?? Thanks for your help.

I personally like the 67-68 GT wheels.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....

They were different from 67-68 Which ones were you refering to?

When adding wheels on a daily driver I recommend that people get aftermarket reproductions. They are stronger and you know that they are straight!

I'm refering to both of them ! As far as aftermarket wheels go, I like the Corn Slot Mags/wheels. I don't know if anyone makes them anymore. I had a set on my 67 Cougar a friend of mine had them on his 67 Mustang Coupe.

Now I am confused about what size to get...I have seen 14X7 in magazines, but there are way more 15" wheels listed. Would it be better just to get the 15s' with a smaller tire so it would sit as high as the 14s' would? Thanks for all your help

I would cut or buy a set of 1in. plus lowering springs, then add 15in. wheels.

I think the 15s will give you better performance. Know that the 15s are all aftermarket modern stuff. They never made them in 15s back in the day. Most people will never be able to tell the differnce, but you will then get a lower profile tire. Meaning less sidewall, meaning less lateral roll, meaning better performance!
