    Best wheel and tire size for a 66 Chevelle

    Hey guys. I have a 66 Chevelle Pro Touring build. I am running 18s front and 20s rear right now and I'm thinking about changing. What do you think is the ideal wheel and tire size for aesthetics as well as function? Thanks

    Call me biased, but I kinda like 18's all around. Fronts are 9" , will be 275's when I'm done, currently 255.Rears are 335/35/18 on 12" rims

    I agree. 19-20” doesn’t look right on a chevelle or Camaro IMO.

    18”. 245/275 or whatever fits. I run 275/295 on my second gen Camaro on 18x10s.

    Tighten it till it strips & back it off a quarter turn.

    14" look best. If only you could find tires like we used to have.. 15" are the best looking. Those big wheels are out of scale on these older cars..

    On my 69 el Camino I have the SC&C Stage 3, Lee 14:1 with Spohn delsphere control arms in the back and the handling is amazing using plain old 225/70r15 Cooper Cobras..
    I am using Porterfield pads and brake shoes with the stock disc/drum set up and it stops good enough for me..

    How was the fit?

    Hi. Did those fit without any modifications? I like those sizes.
