New rims and tires for the 65 Laurentian!


Wheel Vintiques/Cooper Cobra,

Front, 15 x 7, 4.25 bs. 235, 60, 15

Rear, 15 x 8, 4.25 bs. 245, 60, 15. Just fit behind the lip.

Dogdishes will stay. Will probably go body colour, but the light grey looks pretty good too. Starting to see a little attitude coming through now.

Thanks, This is the best side shot I could get. Ugly fender...no trim.

Does anyone like the look of the grey wheels?

Those fill up the wheel wells nicely! That concave body line really eats up clearance for rear tires but those 245s look perfect in there.

Its amazing how much a set of wheels & tires impact the look (and feel) of a car.

In my opinion (which, with about $5 will get you a coffee & donut), a body coloured, double-line pinstripe around the gray wheel would tie it together perfectly...

Wheels look great!

The only opinion that really matters is yours, but if it were me I'd prefer body colour.  My 2¢ only...

I had originally said 4.5, but they are actually 4.25". Same with the fronts.

In order to get any more tire in the 65, you'd need 4.5".

I prefer body coloured rims. Looks like you need to start a vote
Is your 67 sad from neglect? Does it need to come to PEI? lol

It would be allergic to that red mud!

While I do like body colour steel wheels and will likely go blue, this grey colour strangely give it a nostalgic bent in my mind. I don't know why, but it just does.

I would go with Silver Argent. Maybe a blue pinstripe around the outer lip of the rim

Before you paint them use steel alpha numeric punch set and place a key word etc on the inner/outer portion of the rim with photo of code so the code can be seen with the tire on the rim.   

If they disappear some night you have proof if they are ever turned up.

 I wonder if the same would fit a '64 B-body (X-frame).

I'd say it would be close. 

Bring the 64 down and we'll have a try!

After preoccupying the group on my Tire and Wheel Change Project, I see you have the same wheels that I used on the LeMans, I thought you sold them, nonetheless, I'd say body colour.

Silver Argent will take away the dark area around the wheel opening and draw attention to your new tires.  Go with hubcaps or moons. 

Dark blue with dark tires just doesn't pop for me.

Fire up the paint gun.    

The silver argent will match the grille colour

I think you might be onto something with the Argent Cliff.
