Why don't you guys take a look at this website and tell me what you would go with. http://www.wheelsforless.com/America..._Thrust_M.html
I've seen these wheels on the Maier Racing Mustang and I really like the look, but I don't know what size or offset they are.Click the image to open in full size.

The suspension on that mustang is so custom though.I think it would be very hard to fit eighteens on a stock 66.

18's actually fit as easy as 17's as long as the car isnt too low

Finally went out and measure the wheels on the car they are 15 by 8 with the 4.5 inch backspacing the only difference is 17s would be taller I think I'll go for the 17 by 8 with the four and a half inch backspacing. If they don't fit I can always send them back.

they will fit, but you wont be able to run a wide tire(255+).But at this point, its up to you.

p.s., I already had 4.5" BS and sold those and went to a 4.75BS about 15 years ago, a 245 tire rubbed.
