Personally I would be more concerned about the load rating of the tire. A lot of smaller P metrics were designed for light cars like a Cavalier or Civic. As far as safety in running spacers. I run 1 1/2" spacer on my rock crawler with 38" tires and never had a problem. Rims are a personal choice, run the ones that are most appealing to you.

Thanks for your input. I will probably go with the crown Vic wheels I already have and Coker 2 1/2 white walls in 215/75R15.

Strip and polish those Crown Vics... now that would stand out.
I like the others too, different enough, and have angles like the body.

I followed your advice but took it a step further and had them chromed. I am really pleased with the way they look now. Almost like a wire wheel at 1/3 the cost and easier to maintain. They will be getting 215/75R15 Coker 2 1/2" Whitewalls within the next few weeks.
