Tire/Wheel Choice

I am contemplating building a Type 65 Coupe and am putting together my want/need/wish list. I would like the use Vintage Halibrand Replica wheels with the billboard tires for a more traditional look. I would also like the use the IRS for the rear. From the Factory Five videos they don't list the 15 inch wheels as available for the Coupe. Can they be used/what would it take the use them?

According to the complete kit ordering options 15" wheels are available.

See here: https://www.factoryfive.com/order-a-...-complete-kit/

The order page is a great resource to see what options are available and how that impacts the final price of the kit. For many options, there are also links to videos with additional information.

Another thought - determine how hard it's going to be to get the tires you want before committing to a wheel size.
