Brushed TTII's ?

Does anyone have any torq thrust II's on their, preferably 69', Camaro that are brushed ?
So no chrome ones.

There is no replacement for displacement.

Re: Brushed TTII's ?

Absolutely there are, but the problem is they are not called "brushed". I assume you are talking about TT2's that are "natural" alloy (not chrome plated). That style is called "polished", through if they are not maintained they will get a more dull look I guess you could consider "brushed."

Regardless, search "polished TT2" here and there are lots of threads with pics of polished TT2's, like this one:

Re: Brushed TTII's ?

American actually offers a finish called "Suede" on the hoops and caps. I've only seen it with the matte black centers though...not sure they would do it on the whole wheel. I've done several sets with the black centers and polished outers, but none with the suede option hoop.
I think thats what you are talking about???

Maybe he means the CL205, which have gray powdercoated centers?

What I'm meaning is something like this :

Over here we call it brushed.
I don't know how y'all call it

Re: Brushed TTII's ?

Looks like a painted or powdercoated wheel to me. I've never seen a TTII done that way, but not to say they don't exist. You could certainly have them done like that.

Re: Brushed TTII's ?

x2, never seen a Torq Thrust 2 with a finish anything like an OE modern day painted alloy wheel.

Maybe you mean Torq Thrust D wheels? Lots of cars have used those, including many of the 69 Yenko Camaros you see.

Definately paint or powder coat with clearcoat! You won't get a TT like that without doing it yourself....

Not a bad idea to freshen up an older wheel style. Hm..............

No I know the D's, it's not the thing I meant ;-)
But maybe they'll look the way I want them to with that finish but not with the grey..

So 99.9% of the TTII's are chrome ?

Re: Brushed TTII's ?

I just got some Torq Thrust 2s from Newstalgia and they're not chrome they're polished alloy like Dennis said. Here is the thread with pics.
