    1) The wheel/tire width is where you're likely to have issues and why would you want to go above 15" for a 'stock car'?
    2) Using 16" wheels might be mistake as tires for that size have almost disappeared and that size is essentially out of favor.

    If you are wanting to have a 'rake' in your front end (lower than the rear), you can do that wtih the tires and keep the wheels the same diameter all the way around (either 15 or 17 would be my suggestion). The '57 originally came with 14" wheels and 7.50x14 tires!
