Here is the 79 that I just picked up for my sons 16th birthday suprise. It needs 15x8 in the back. What size tires do you guys recommend front and rear

Here is my 78'. I know it's not everyone style. If Chevy made a 78' SS, I think it would be similar to this. Started life as a Landau, as evident by the side moulding.
Exterior: Removed 1/2 vinyl top, painted original black, added SS stripes, added 15' Rally wheels
Interior: Complete 86" Monte SS interior including wiring harness and dash. Only 1/4 glass trim re-used but painted to match.
Rear: 8.5", 3:73 gears, added a Eaton Limited slip, donated from a 85' 442.
Motor: 71' 350 block, .030 over, 10.2:1 flat top pistons, 65' corvette "fulie" heads, 64cc, ported and polished and studded, comp cams XE268 grind, roller 1.52 rockers, Edelbrock R.P.M air gap manifold, Edelbrock 650 AVS2 carb., Pypes exhaust.
Trans: Tremec TKO 600
Suspension and steering: Rear shock tower brace, upper and lower rear control arms boxed, Full F41 sway bars and steering box, Rear upper control arm to frame braces, front frame rail interconnect brace, SS springs all around.

I believe mine is the closest thing to a ss they built. 80 Turbo Sport Coupe. Your car is almost exactly what I wanted to build my 79 like in high school, but with BlackBerry ghost stripes. Thanks for sharing.

With the weld wheels and 315’s all around. Also just did an auto (700R4) to T56 mag swap. Motor is a sbc 400 with about 11:1 compression. Finding the correct flywheel was fun. Can’t wait for the first race in September
