Wheel and Tire Suggestions wanted

I have a 1963 Chevy Pick up truck. Will be putting in a new small block shortly, 383 with 400+ HP.

Do people have wheel and tire suggestons for me in terms of sizes? I am still running drum/drum brakes so 6 lug is a requirement.

Thanks for the thoughts.

Most new Chevy and GMC trucks have 6 lugs so if you like the factory alloy wheels they should not be too hard to find.But if I where you I would think about your long term plans for the truck and make decisions based on that.If you want state some of your goals and maybe we can better help you with suggestions.For instance ,first start a project journal so we can see what you have and keep it up dated so we can see where you are going.Has the suspension been upgraded in any way? Do you plan on adding power disc brakes and power steering etc.?
