    Questionwheel suppliers

    hi all,
    i'am hunting for some new wheels & rubber for my new toy
    & was wondering who to go to for them
    due to the wide rear end on my pontiac i really need deep dish rears
    10/12x15 & 7/8x15 front
    the reason i'm asking is i dont really know what will suit the old girl as most of whats currently available is just to modern or to vintage
    ideas of suppliers & styles would be greatfully received many thanks rik.

    beleive it or not the rears are already 255/60/15 & they look lost in the arches

    It depends what look you're after but I'd go for slotmags or chrome 5-spokes. 7" for the front and 10" on the back. You'll have to lift the rear slightly as the 10s would sit out under the lip.

    8s on the front will make the steering heavier and 12s are way too wide for the rear.

    check the pcd on your motor before you order, 63/64 Buicks and Olds are 5 on 5, not 5 x 4.75 the same as Chevies
