I am trying to build my T in the 60's style and other than spoke wheels,(they cost too much) I was wondering what type of car should I look for. Narrow on front and big/wide in back. Or maybe not. LOL

I was thinking the same thing about wheels. Best that I can figure, its just personal choice. The spoke wheels are not cheap. I think its just a matter of what looks best to you. I am just beginning my project and wheels is way down my list at the moment but I guess its gonna take me awhile to figure that one out.

Depends on the look you want. I'm going for the 50's with solid wheels and baby moons. L78-15 with 3" wide white walls in the back. 560-15 with 2-3/4 wide white walls in the front.

Yep... spoke mags were the rage, however many of us that had to pay for all our clothes, cars, gas, insurance, etc while in school could not afford such things, so we just did Chrome Wheels (deep dish in the rear)... slap on the baby moons and we were cruising! :cool:

linersis,

Could you tell me what tires you have on both the front and rear. That is exactly what I'm looking for.
