Question

I want to put a set of Torque Thrust Wheels on my Camaro. I'd like to paint them to match the silver color on the Yenko cars with the optional wheels. What is the correct color silver to use and where can I get it? Would it work to powder coat the wheels and how much does that cost? And where is a good place to buy set of Torque Thrust Wheels? Thanks.

Thumbs up

Chris,

From what I have seen in pics of Yenkos with TT's the color is the standard color that comes on the non polished TT's new out of the box. At work I have pic of a Baldwin-Motion car with what looks like a gold/bronze color TT. It looks pretty good. Also you might try checking out www.yenko.net and see if there is any detailed info there. I think they even have a forum. Good Luck.

Yenko used a ATLAS Mag wheel then put his own sticker on the center cap. Since the ATLAS wheels can not be found, people are using the repro Torque Thrust wheel on the Yenkos. The center cap sticker repro is available. Email me if you are interested in the decal.
