15 in or 17 in artillery wheels?


Recommended Posts

I am in the process of selecting rims for my 1953 Chevy 3100. I currently have the drum brakes, but not sure in the future if I am going to switch to disc brakes.  Right now its stock height but also might be lowered 2 or 3 inches in the future as well. 


With that all in mind, what size artillery wheels would best be for the truck.  I know they come in 15 in or 17in artillery wheels with wide white walls.  I just want to make the most educated discussion so I do not have to buy rims again in the future.  


Looking for any advice or suggestions, thank you!

Thank you! The tires were older, dry, and eventually cracked after this photo was taken.  When I took the wheels and tires off to replace them, I realized the interior rim on one was cracked and these at 16in wheels.  Since I am going to have to fix or replace the rim, I was looking for artillery steel wheels with original hub caps with "Chevrolet" wording instead of the chevy logo ones on now.
