I went with the Magnum 500's and BF Goodrich Radial T/A's. But before you go to CJ's, give Coker Tire a call. There is two manufacturers of the Magnums right now. Wheel Vintiques and Specialty Wheel Limited. From reading reviews and problems on line, my assessment was that the Specialty Wheel is a higher quality wheel. But Coker Tire's online quote was much higher than the quote I got when I called them.

Anyone ever try a different look of '67 Cougar Styled Steel wheels? They look beautiful on a '65-'68 stang!...for a different look!
How about these? Check it out!
What do you think now?? I thought so...! Nothing like still being ALL Ford....err Mercury...and still being Period Correct! This was a "VERY" Popular Mod to Classic Mustangs "back in the day" to stand out among the crowd. I am surprised more people are not doing it today. I am thinking of getting a Full set for my '65 to do something different... If I get sick of them (Which I doubt), I can always sell them...Talk about an easy sale....!
Just use regular '65-'67 Mustang center caps... Also, These wheels are specially designed to be able to use a Trim ring as well, but not necessary..since the outer rim is now "fully chromed" chromed more like a '65 Mustang S/S rim. The original '67 Cougar S/S rims had a black painted outer rim like '66-'67 Mustang Styled Steel wheels, so these new repros are a big improvement! If you've never seen these on a classic '65-'68 Mustang, Then you don't know what you are missing! For those that want something different! Most people..even seasoned Mustangers usually do a "Double-take"..and say.. What are those? I love them! Keep them guessing! Not for "Concourse" use of course....lol....
These come in 14x6, 14x7, 15x6, 15x7 and 15x8 sizes! See Below! :
