Vintage Racing look

I think I'm going to try to sell my Coddington wheels. I'd like to go for a more vintage trans-am racing look. 15" wheels and taller sidewalls than I've got now would be really cool.

I like the Mini Lite style wheel. I know TeamIII sells one. Any other companies make this style wheel (maybe for a bit less money)?

I also like the American Racing wheels with the grey centers. Any other copies of that wheel available?

Were there any other wheels used by the vintage camaro guys?

Re: Vintage Racing look

I think I might go with the Team III's. They have the size I'm interested in. Need to do some measuring first to see if I can fit a 15x10 in my rear wheel well. The car is mini-tubbed, but it might be close.

I have all black 68. I am going with the torque thrust D. Your car looks great! I prefer 15inch wheels myself. I'm oldschool I guess.
