Default 740 Steelies on 240

Hi all,
Got a set of these (1387534) for $50. Will do some sanding and painting, for a 88 244, which size of tires you would recommend? And what's the perimeter of the inner ring for a hubcap. I want the leanest look possible. Will black ones fit?

Good luck restoring these wheels. It seems like a great price for such quality.

I have painted and mounted the rims, looks sporty and leaner. Next step is to find a sort of hubcap.
