I have a maroon '66. Been looking at tire/rims but having a tough time figuring out what looks good. So, show me your wheels!

Crager S/S 17". I like it when people admiring the old Gal say, "Hey, you've got Cragars on there..."

Magnum 500s. Although they were a Ford wheel, they were not offered on the 66 Galaxies. I cannot tell you how many compliments I have received regarding the Magnum 500/Redline Tires combination on my car.

Having arrived at a 'certain age', I can safely say "who needs to look at naughty pics on the internet, when one can ogle these babies right here "live" on FMF. My, my, them are purdy Pat! :bow::bow::bow:

Norm, thank you so much. I really like them too. It really does look bad ass in person. But I really really really want a 1964 drag look, painted steels with bias's. grass is always greener on the other side.

US Mag single piece 15x7/8s on mine, machined lip, deep dish with black spokes and a chrome centre cap. Tyres are 215/75 on the front and 245/60 on the back.

Poor quality photo but you get the idea...

Well, you are wise beyond your years my friend (about the grass). When you finish the total 427 drag car "motif", the steels/bias will be the cherry on the sundae!

Polished Centerline Telstars on the '61. Have Cragars on my Starliner currently but will probably end up with steelies (widened in the rear) and dog dish hubcaps on it eventually.

15" Cragar S/S's on a 63 1/2
8" wide on the rear and 7" wide on the front.

The car was built March of 1963, so a custom wheel that came out in 1964 was perfect,.....in MY mind anyhow.

Dave66 - that was the kind of look I am trying to see. My '66 XL has the vinyl top...just want to make sure it looks ok with good rims. Nice ride!
