Wheel choices

What would your wheel choice be between these 4 wheels under a SBC 69 RS/SS Camaro coupe with Hotchkis lowering leafs and springs. No tubs.
Car to be painted either black or a dark candy apple red. Still in debate with the family.
Front: 17x8 (4.75" backspacing) Nitto 555's 235/45-17
Back: 17x9.5 (5.5" backspacing) Nitto 555's 255/45-17
At first while I am in the build after several years, I was only interested in the Torque Thrust II's
My 2 boys 8 & 6, vote for the Billet Specialties Street Star's.
My Wife Votes for the Budnik Anvil5's.
I'm leaning towards the Budnik Fontana's but also really like the Anvil5's.
What do you think folks?
Torque Thrust II
Billet Specialties Street Star
Budnik Fontaina
Budnil Anvil5

Re: Wheel choices

WOW!
You guys are surprising me.
Seems the TTII's are still a popular flavor.

Re: Wheel choices

I always ask what "look" are you after? If you don't want an "old school" look than I don't think you can go wrong with the Budnik Fontanas. For a billet wheel the design is timeless and they won't look "dated" a couple of years from now. If you have to have the TTIIs then also consider www.vintagewheelworks.com or www.team3wheels.com . They both offer a traditional "old school" 5 spoke and VWW evens offers 2 different spoke designs.

Re: Wheel choices

I can chop in my selection if you have a good pic of the car. Send me a PM to remind me, cause I'm moving kinda slow here in Hawaii.

Re: Wheel choices

If your going to include the TT2's you may as well include the Boyd Coddington smoothie 2, they are basically a torque thrust just with more style and no ugly lips.

The only Mustang I'd ever own is a Fender.

Re: Wheel choices

As popular as TTII's are, to me i would only put a set of those on a car if I was going to flip it. Goal is to make your car stand out from a crowd, not blend in IMO.

Re: Wheel choices

Anything but TTII's, they are way to common and played out IMO. Of these choices, I would go with the Budnik Fontana! I had them on a previous car and liked them myself.
