    you wanna put a lot of meat on a 14 inch wheel? ....:realcrazy:

    FYI
    Your tire selection will be limited, start with at least 15s

    The 14 inch rims really do limit your tire size choices. click the link in my last post for some really good recommendations.

    At Carlisle a few years I saw a '66 300 with 16: Vintique wheels that looked surprisingly nice on it. Anything larger will definitely look "modified," for what it's worth...…
