My 68 Coupes new shoes

15" Cragar Soft 8's. 15x8 rear with 4.75BS, and 15x7 with 4.25"BS. Tires are 245/60 in back and 215/65 in front. Tires will clear the wheel lips nicely. I am very impressed with this budget set. Was going to go with something chrome, but decided to go different. I may add beauty rings later but for now I really dig the black.

I love the looks of the soft-8's with the raised white letters...trend is not to use the raised white letters anymore, but I think this look is awesome.

Thanks guys! I really wasn't sure if this would work so I'm glad to hear some positive feedback. Next I will be blacking out the tail panel and adding the 68 hood stripes (in black) to compliment the wheels.

Blacked out tail panel looks so good IMO

Black on black looks pretty sweet on the right car IMO.

Nice! I have started to grow on those wheels lately. There is another thread here with a 65 fastback picture with them on. I say they are hot!

Here is the thread (think the wheels may be different but still black)
