16`s may have a good selection of tires now. The real question here is what will it be 5-10 years down the road when it is time to change them again ? if you think the trend is for bigger rims then the selection will have shrunk by then.

'68 Mustang
347ci that has a lot of neat stuff in it
T5 manual trans, alum driveshaft, 9" w/3.70 gears
Suspension parts from SoT, Global West, Maier Racing, and a few others. Works for me!
TCP manual rack (love it)
EPAS (Love this the most)
VWW V45 wheels (like these too)
SoT 13" brakes (stopping is good)
And I finally got a paint job!

Front -245/40, rear 255/45. At the next tire change I'll be going to 255/40 in the front, and 275/40 in the back.
