Seems most people run 15x8 or 16x8. The orange car is 16x8 but can’t find those wheels anywhere that aren’t 15x8
If that's the look you're going for, you will probably find the car needs to be lowered. Otherwise, you'll have nice wheels but a larger gap between the tires and fender than what you see in the pictures. Eibach makes springs that lower the car 1-1.5", the kit is about $325 or so. Some people claim that the car didn't get any lower after installing these and it's hypothesized that 50 year old springs are no longer stock height due to sagging and in essence, are lower than stock. Here's a set of the wheels. Do your homework though, there are some conflicting reports about whether those will fit or not. Spacers may be needed, maybe not. Fenders may need to be rolled, maybe not. Assuming you're going to increase the width of your tires with those wide wheels, consider what that will do to the effort needed to turn at low speed.
