So what do you think guys....should I put the 17" GT rims that I was using as snow rims/tires on the 73 or should I wait till I have enough coin to buy 15 Magnums?

I have a set of Pirelli's that came with the 17" so I would be all set for new tires.

You gotta do what you gotta do...if you need to run the 17's go for it. They look nice but personally, I'd hold out for the magnum look! Just my opinion! Big Grin

The gt's don't cut it period..Just look wrong..If your buying magnums you should go 17's not 15's JMO

IMHO would go with the magnums over the Gt but thats ultimately your call.

I dont like big wheels on old cars... but that´s my point of view, very personal... I do like big profile tires.. look at my car Tongue

Looking at the pics and trying to be objetive i think your hole combo of wheel and tire, in both options is small... I mean, the final diameter is not big enough to full the wheel opening...

Do you need 17" wheels for break clearance or it is just looks??... MAybe as Scott said, 17" Magnum 500 can do it all... But if your thing is just asthetics, be aware that tires are there too...

The best looking convertible i saw (again in my opinion) is Jorge´s... A green one with a perfect fitted magnum 500 and dont remember which, but the correct tyres and high of the suspension... check it out...

With big wheels, you have the example of the yellow Luxstang´s vert... Again, perfect fit with a different asthetics...

Hope it helps!

I like the look of a 17" wheel, but didn't care for that particular gt wheel on the 71-73's. Ialso like the magnums...so maybe the 17" magnum wheel is an option?

I have to agree with you guys the look of the GT rim isn't right ....I'll stick with my magnums for now until I can get some 17" magnums.

Thanks everyone.
