Your opinion please 68 fastback wheels

I'm looking for ideas for wheel type and size to dress up my 68 fastback. Everything is stock 390 gt and now I'm looking for a little pizzazz to get noticed.

Keep the wheels you have, they are some of the best looking wheels ever on a Mustang.

Leave it be. If you feel you aren't getting noticed enough go see a doctor because the issue isn't the car.

You can buy some variety of the 5 spoke and be like everybody else, or keep those. Which I did on my '68.... back when. I had to find the "GT" caps. When I drove by a guy's yard sale I saw them. Paid him $125 for the set. When I got home saw the $20 marked on the back.

I also love the original GT wheels, but if you must change, I love the torque thrust style wheels on a 68
I have these: https://www.amazon.com/Vision-Legend.../dp/B01M7R1OLE
but got them from discount tire, got a great deal

I went with these Vision torque 143s for something a bit different.

I like the stockers too but a nice Torq Thrust is a good option for those years that looked like the Bullitt.

If I wasn't going with what you already have it'd be 10-spokes....

My car came with AR on the car, and the originals in the trunk. I'm keeping those originals for exactly that reason look great. Only issue is tire choice.

I think your original setup looks very good.
But if you must, my 2nd choice would be a set of Vintage Wheelworks 45 torque thrusts with the old style D shaped spokes 16x7 all around or 16x7 up front and 16x8 in back.
But you would need to check the tires you choose for figment prior to mounting.
Vintage Wheelworks was bought by Coker Tire last Dec so you have to get them there now.
Coker Tire offers free shipping deals every once in a while as well.

Rims will run you about $145 each.
