Default Wheel Opinion

Since the only WW for the 14 are crazy money and I think it would look better with 15 inch wheels. I have some CC rims. I like the 72 Caddy wheel cover. I can leave the Caddy medallion on or try these that I found. So opinions on the Vogue tires or just a WW tire. Tires will be 235/7015,s Thanks

you are right on that picked up a set on a Christmas sale for this 64. 225/75 should be a better looking tire if you can get them. We get so use to the wide tires we forget just how skinny the origional ones were.

I like to also but wheels are just a bolt on . I'll keep the wheels. But over $1200 dollars for four 14" WW tires Just does seem worth it.

They are out of sight same problem with the 890s.
But here i set on a nice set of 17" tires with a load rating of 2600 lb at 40 psi. Now find a steel wheel with a 5x5 bolt pattern. Let alone any kind of wheel cover. By the way a 265x17 Pirelli is a narrow tread and 30 inch diameter.

What vintage are your CC rims?? Do you know that your '71/'72 wheel covers will stay on them?

Wheels are late 70,s . Should fit but I need to test fit the caps just to be sure before I buy 15 inch tires.
