Default Wheel advice for 1979 Chevrolet Nova

I am looking into some wheels from 4WheelOnline because they have a wide variety of them. Just a quick question guys, what kind of modern wheel should I install on my 1979 Chevrolet Nova?

What diameter wheel are you looking at? Any modifications to the suspension? A lot more factors have to be considered to get the proper width and backspacing.

my first post here @ novas.net. i have been putting together a fourth gen as well, a '76. i found some 17x8 billet specialties on marketplace including 2 new nittos 255/45... @140$ for the set!
i dont care for their flower power styling but they wont be my perm wheels. just needed something right away to replace the three rusty 14inch rallys and a spare. if you go modest on tire size and backspace, there are alot of used sets w tires out there to get you into the game for cheap!

have you found any you like?

What 62 NovaWagon said, but since you've already got some spiffy wheels and tires....I think you need TUNES to go with that ride.
