1971 camaro wheels upgrade

Hello guys im new to this site and need some help. I bought a set of 2012 20" wheels for my 71 and they work great on the back but the front needs help. Should I put spacers on it or try and find newer spindles

Why ruin a classic with huge rims? I love the factory 14" on mine.

Only reason I would go up in rim size is because they don't make drag radials for a 14 so I'd go to a 15 . Call me old school lol
