51 wheel options

So while I'm fixing leaks and going over my suspension on my mostly stock 51 F1. I'm trying to decide on wheels/tires and if I'm wanting to get new ones (if I have the $$$).

I have right now P245/60r15 on a set of Chevy rally sports... PO's doings, not mine!!
I'd like a set of 17" wheels and possibly go back to the factory tire height/diameter. My concern is the shorter sidewall and the affect this will have on my ride and ability to drive it.

The suspension is factory and will remain that way for now. I'm just tightening it back up.

Thank you for reading
