As far as wheel and tire size...I would go into the first sticky thread under wheels and tires. It has several different wheel/tire combos depending on what you prefer. It also has some pictures of some killer rides.

A lot of good info. I wish they all had pictures, but definitely enough to help you out.

Make your measurements and then go to a size calculator website to see the max wheel and tire for your car. You will be able to try several different set ups and tire combos.

I have the same car, I went;

15X8 with 4.5 backspacing - 275/60-15
15X6 with 3.5 backspacing - 215/70-15

Some guys go with a 15X10 with 5.5 backspacing and a 295/50-15. I like the other look myself.

I've got the Pro Stars on mine. You can see them in the link below. 15 x 8 on the rear and 15 x 7 on the front. That's about the size that looks best IMHO. As far as the Pro Stars vs Street Lite they have a pretty similar look. The Street Lites have a little more definition to them. Both are fine looking wheels.

I have have always had Weld Pro Stars (my 69 has the new Weld 2.0) on my street car but I really like the Billet Street Lite.
