I like 13” wheels you can run fatter profile tyres like 55/60 profile and car rides much nicer than on low profile tyres,when I first built my moggy in 80’s they were biggest I could get,excuse photo of young me
Wheels were 13x6

I never thought the 13" wheels currently on it looked too small until I started this thread - looking at the car yesterday, I could see it!

I think 13 inch wheels look fine too. Only problem I had was getting them wide enough for 8 inch rims. Largest width now seems to be a 205/60 x13, plus there is a price to pay these days because of rarity.
Mine with 13's:
