Default Q's: Wheel Options for a 1989?

I'm playing around with the idea of purchasing a set of driver wheels and tires for my 89 convertible. I would then have the original General tires mounted back on the original wheels for storage. I need to get a new set of tires as it is as the Michelins on the car now are a bit dry rotted.

So far I have been looking at 17inch or 18inch SC replicas.

Or, I've looked at the the 18inch Saleen replicas.

The key is I don't want to modify the car in any way to use the wheel and tire combo.

Has anyone added any of these wheels to there car without modification? If so, what size tire did you use?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

I would recommend staying with a 17" wheel. I'm not sure how well a 18" wheel would fit on a Foxbody.

The 18's will fit, but that doesn't mean it will look good/correct.
