I'm considering doing a 5-lug conversation to my '74 2.0L using Eric Shea's kit from PMB. I'd prefer this option because I can easily convert it back to the 4-lug if needed. There are a number of replica Fuchs available from Maxilite that look pretty good....15x6 (deep 6), 15x7R and the standard 15x7. The offsets on each of these wheels is different ET36, ET47 & ET23.3.....are there advantages/disadvantages with each? What would be the safest tire width that could be run on each of these wheels without modifying the bodywork on the car.....would 195/65/15 be a safe bet? The photo below would be the ideal look that I'm looking for....15x7 with the RS or RSR finish. I'm open for suggestions / opinions.
