As the title states.... I have a1969 Mach 1 mustang... It's red with black out hood.... Here are some of my ideas...

Weld pro-stars 15x8 and 15x4

Weld center-lines 15x8 and 15x4

Solid rims satin 15x8 and 15x4

What do you guys think? What are you opinions? What looks the best on the 69's? Thanks!

15x4? Drag car? Or just want the hot rod look with skinny's in the front? 4's up front seem way tiny. Personally think it would look a bit odd, with 8's in the back, but your car.

+1 for Magnum 500's. Classic period look and correct for the car.... TTD's are nice, but the weld solid chrome looks a bit "blingy" and trying to hard to me.

Like the blacked out look of the Magnum's on a Mach, ties in to the black hood, stripes and tail spoiler, assuming you have them...

This just looks pretty good to me (found on Wikipedia, not my photo)

It's not a drag car but does go to the track 3-5 times a month... I was looking for the hot rod look.... And ya I hate the chrome solids... Thinking about satin...

The only problem with magnums is every one has them... If you own a 69 or 70 around me... They have magnums hana

Magnum 500's or Torque Thrust D's. If you're area is flooded with Magnum's get the D's they look better in my opinion.

Drag lites look good.... What size tires are you running? I was thinking 15x8 with a 255/60.... Or something close... My car is painted exact same...

I had weld draglite's on my 70' Mach and I have magnums on my 69'; they both look great. I personally like the magnums better now, but when I was younger, I liked the welds a lot more.

Front tires are M/T Sportsman 28x7.5-15. Rears are M/T SS L60-15. I don't think you can get those anymore. They are a bit bigger than a 275/60-15. The 15x9 wheels with 5.5" BS fit really well. The 15x8 with 5" BS works well but the Welds don't come that way.
