Over the years I've become more prone to Stock or Rally Wheels. Mainly because they are so much easier to keep clean.

I have had both types on a few different novas,
you cant beat rallyes for ease of upkeep etc. they are HEAVY though.
i also just bought the summit sport stars for my 70, more upkeep on polished aluminum.
just a matter of taste really...

heres my old 72 with the welds(never should've sold that car!)

and my 70 with the ralleys

eddie, 72sbc from norcal owns it now.

FWIW, for a daily driver you can't beat ralleys. I had them on my 70 as well. I also like good 'ole crager/weld superlites. A dark horse favorite is the '70 Z/28 wheels. Good offset to stuff a decent size tire.

I have to go with the Pro Stars. I run them on mine, 165R15s up front and 255/60s in the rear.

I have rally's and they look good but I dont think anything looks better than the Torq-Thrusts. My plan is for those once I get the suspension done.

I know these aren't on your list of possibilities but I always thought that Cragar S/S wheels looked the best on any Nova. Just my 2 cents. If I had to choose between the two I would go with rallyes.

Good luck.
Mike
