17 inch rims has the best selection of tires. From road racing to drag radial tires came in large selection. You can even go 18 inch rims with the same or larger selection of tires. It did pends on what you want to do with the car.

I know quite a few CR & CR II have 15x10.5 rears. I went with 15x8 front & rears since I built mine as a 427Street (Rocket Sunbrust), with 3/4" offset in the rears. I'm sure other people will chime in with what offsets you will need for 15x10.5" Never went to 17/18" wanted the stock tire/wheel look, but yes there are a lot more tire/wheel combo's in 17/18". Good Luck, Cheers TommyRot.

Vintage wheels under their "Cobra Wheels" section shows the 15's and the offsets. Do a search here on the threads, there are several threads with all sizes. Remember the bigger the rim, the less the sidewall, thus harsher ride.

I'm a pretty aggressive driver, I've been known to turn right to go left, this thing will probably be on the track at Nelson ledges and mid ohio, just want the best tires for traction, not really looking for a 70,000 mile tire,

Go 17 in rim and select tire. No further discussion is necessary.
