Try American Racing Torque Thrust (it has its own unique model number which escapes me, but has been referred to this way) in 15" which nicely simulates (as they say for "restomods" not pure restorations) and Centerline has a very nice new wheel out in a similar classic wide spoked configuration. Put 215-65-15 tires (or 205-65 or 215-50-15 at the smallest) on for a nice balance between looks, ride and (more current) handling. In 16 inch, this would translate into a 215-60-16 (or at the smallest 215-55-16). In any event, don't succumb to the temptation to put anything larger than a 15 or 16 inch wheel on: not necessary. 15 inch will give an edge over the "old" 14 inchers of yesteryear without giving it a buckboard ride. 215-65s are also good on restomods of 63-67 Vettes. Good luck!
