I think 18"s and even 17"s may be too big to fit.

Why on earth would you bastardize a 57!? Unless this has been made into a street rod (God, I hope not), I would keep it original. If you must do this, make sure before you buy them that you will have full turning, right to left on the front wheels and that the rear wheels don't bottom out on bad bumps

I only change what can be bolted on to change the look,i save all original parts.

Sooo glad to hear that. Still not sure about oversize tires. Be careful to check clearances. Thanks for the Best Answer.
