15X8 Rear
15X7 Front

They don't make 16's in the Magnum 500's and anything bigger will have backspacing issues on this car. The tires are mighty large though and fill up the wheel well nicely.
60s on the back 70s on the front? That's old school.

I went with all 4 70's. It was suggested I stay all the same for this particular vehicle so I did
Best for handling. I think the 70 / 60 thing was for looks only.

There were more than a few cars of other owners my age who put abnormally skinny tires up front along with much fatter in the rear. Fine for a straight line, nothing more. Few if any cared about cornering.

Hows the suspension on the car?

One of the best things I did for my 68 was a refresh of the suspension. New aftermarket front springs, shocks, front sway bar, and rear leaf springs. It handled great.

I've only driven it around the block 2 times. By all account it sucks. It is on my list of things to check out. In all fairness my current auto is the nicest "ride" I have ever had so hard to get back into another way of what a ride it.

You have a CTS-V right?
