    I was super bored yesterday wondering if winter will ever end. So I messed around with some different wheel/tire combos I've collected over the past several months but not yet tried on. I'm not really looking to rank the looks because I'm keeping all of them. I want to be able to change up it up whenever I feel like it. But I figured someone out there in FABO land might find the comparison useful. The car has factory SBP discs and drums and all the wheels are 14's.

    Here are the Cragar S/S's that have been on the car since I bought it.

    Even though rallye wheels are not period correct for a '67 (like Cragars are, lol), I've always been a fan of Mopar rallye wheels. Definitely a bit less shiny and mean looking and they don't fill up the wheel wells like the Cragars, but I like the look:

    I blasted and powder coated some rusty old steelies I had laying around to play around with an original look. I picked up a set of dog dishes that need some polish and paint. I wanted to do the wheels body color, but my powder coater wanted a fortune to match the color and I don't think I'll end up running these much if at all, so I went white to try to set off the stripes. I picked up an extra set of beauty rings while I was at it. Haven't popped for new rubber on them because again, I'm not sold on the look yet. These tires are pretty old bias ply's that aren't dry rotted or bald, but they need replacing if I ever get serious about the stock look. I'd likely go with red stripes if so. Seeing them on the car now, I wish I would have put the black walls out and not bothered with the rings. I also have a set of original full hubcaps, but they are pretty plain and I doubt I'll ever run those. Anyway, here it is with and without the rings. Meh.

                  Out of all the choices, I like the rallye or the steelies in body color or black.
                  Just my 2 cents.
                  Never cared for Cragars.

                    Cragers!

                    the white rims make it look like a clown car at the circus. Body color would be better for those.

                      Cragars or Black Steelies with caps.
                      Steelies #1
                      Cragars #2

                      out of those choices i say the cragars...

                      the rally wheels are ugly as hell

                      if the steel wheels were painted body color i'd like those, they would be tough looking on it... and no trim rings on them because they give an ugly look to them....

                        Yeah ... I am usually a stock look guy but the Cragars do look nice on there .
                        The stock wheels in Black or color keyed look badass with wider tires and poverty caps .

                          I really liked the rally’s on my 67. But that was the 80s A5BE2127-2D07-4002-9235-756799EC2C4F.jpeg

                            My vote goes for the Cragar S/S wheels, that's what I was used to seeing along with Keystone K lug.

                            Cragars or even better, torque thrusts!

                              I like the cragars, kinda partial to them. Came with the car. Altho the next ones will be stock steelies with dog dish.

                                No standard faux mag factory wheel covers? I`ve been thinking about putting mine back on, but my wheel lug surfaces are chewed to hell , probably from years of too much torque impact guns:mad:
