I can dig those US Mags and tires. Back when these cars were new, those US Mags were popular, as were the Ansen Sprints ( similar looking ), Cragar SS,  Keystones, American Torque Thrusts. No self-respecting cool car owner would hit the streets without a cool set of rims on his/her ride. it didn't really matter if the car was super fast or not, street cred dictated you had cool rims to roll on. Nothing has changed!
I personally, on my Mach, like the original look today, and I can brag about being one of the very few rolling on the original dog dish/ beauty ring combo that came on the car.  However...….if Van Nuys Blvd were still happening like it was when I was younger, I'd be sorely tempted to have an extra set of custom wheels and tires to bolt on, just to make the scene. Here's my stock look.

Very nice.  Do you have any pics of the car on the ground with those wheels on it?  My car is nearing the completion of body & paint.  I'm considering the same wheel/tire size and want to see what it would look like.  I'm having a hard time deciding between Magnums and the slots.  Thanks.
