Post by: august2018 on August 17, 2018, 11:51:37 AM
I just purchased a 1979, one owner Trans Am. Original matching numbers 403 / 6.6L/ Auto. I am looking for snowflake wheels.

Go with the year one snowflakes and a set of Nitto 17 inch tires well worth the money I will never go back to my stock 15in Rally wheels again the handling is just incredible now with the 17 inch rubber.
The 17 inch wheels are a bolt on wheel and tire situation.  The tire diameter is exactly the same as the 15s. I use 255 50-17 Nitto for rubber exactly the same dimensions as a stock 15 in tire.
I did just notice if you look at the Trans Am Nationals Facebook site someone just listed a nice set of 15-inch snowflakes for 400 bucks plus shipping if you’re looking to stay original that looks to be an awesome deal
