Default Wheels and Tires for '87

I am about to purchase an '87, and it has the factory wheels which, in my opinion, are very bland and kind of ugly.
Also, the tires seem to be getting harder to find which leads me to the following question:
What would be a good wheel and tire combo for this car? I want to stick to 16" wheels, but would like to go to a tire that isn't so wide and is more readily available. I won't be racing this car; it will be a pampered Sunday driver.
I would like to see pics of your car if you have done such a swap. Thanks!

Default Tires, wheels

I have been down this road. The best ride, handling, combination for my 87 is 17" rims, 315 35 17s for the back and 275 45 17s for the front. The improvement in ride and performance is amazing. No rubbing fit well. The price is reasonable buying a package.

AFS wheels and Sawblades are some of the popular rims for early models.

What's the backspace and the thickness of the spacers you're running? I don't think it's 36-38mm from what I've read.

Regular preventive maintenance is probably the single thing you can do as a car owner to keep your ride happy and save money on repairs in the future. However, not everyone agrees on what preventive maintenance is, what you should do, and when you should do it. Let's clear that up, and give you some tips that'll apply to any vehicle.
