Looks great! don't change a thing.
Do you have tire clearance with that backspacing on the rear wheels?

Just went to drive my car and even before I got out of my driveway the front tires scrubbed the very front of the fenders. I was worried about the 3.75 backspacing of my front wheels even with 225-70-15 tires. I might go with Corvette Rally's, are they 4" or 4.5" backspacing.

Thanks

I don't think the corvette rally wheels will look as good.
Get some 15 x 7 wheels for the front with different backspace and you will be good.

Car looks high in both the front and back from stock, is that your intent? 4.5 backspace on 14x6 rims was standard on the chevelle SS. 4.5 backspace on 14x5 rims for the Malibu. What rear is in the car? Do you have the wider rear from a 68 and up. Then if you have repo quarters on the car the lip extends further to the inside than on an original quarter.
Bottom line make sure there is no interference with the fenders or quarters.
