The white letter tires are a retro thing, so I think some retro wheels would work well with them. Something that mimics the old "Cragar SS Mags" like the current "Bullitt" style wheels for example. I had deep dish bullitts on my car for a while, and I thought they looked great on this car. (had to take them off when I put on Brembo big front brakes because they would not clear)
Think about any other considerations before you buy. Are you mainly interested in looks; or do you want to go racing someday? If racing, drag or road track? If road track, you will probably want lightweight wheels that will clear big brakes, so that lets out the Bullitts.
Also to go with the retro look, you probably want a relatively high sidewall; with a relatively small diameter wheel. So that means 18" wheel with maybe a 45 or 50 aspect ratio tire, depending on the width.
If you can't find white letter tires, I think you can get a marker and do the white letters yourself on any tire.
