What wheels are these? Very Nice

Does anyone know what these wheels are. I am thinking of getting a set for my car. Are they Torque Thrust ll's? If they are what size? They just look perfect on that car in my opinion.

Re: What wheels are these? Very Nice

Those are Torq Thrust D's... they are my favorites, too.
As for size... it's anybodys guess. Might be 15x7.

If you like those you might also look at Vintage wheel works before you place your order. The Torque thrust II's can also be bought with grey centers and polished lips in larger diameter sizes.

You cant go wrong with the D's though!

Re: What wheels are these? Very Nice

The wheels are indeed Torque Thrust "D"'s one piece wheels. The frt look like 15 x 7. The rear are probably 15 x 8 1/2" one piece Torque Thrust "D"'s. Look at my User CP and you will see my '68 with the same wheeels. American Racing does make them in larger sizes with different offsets but be prepared to pay much more because the larger sizes are two piece with a polished rim. Summit Racing sells both.

Re: What wheels are these? Very Nice

Thanks guys. Sounds like the difference between the II's and the D's are the that D's are 2 piece and more expensive. They both look the same to me.

Not sure about that. My wheels are American CL205's, the same as TTII but with gray powdercoated centers. Definitely 2 piece. Something tells me a 2 piece wheel is less costly to build.



This is my first Camaro back in about 1976. I think these were old Torqu Thrusts, but not positive.

Re: What wheels are these? Very Nice

Mike,

These are American Racing Torque Thrust D's purchased just last year. They are two piece wheels in 15x7 with 3.76 BS. I'm running BFG T/A's in 225/60 up front and 245/60 in the back. I wanted to stick with 15" and tall'ish tires to retain that old school look.

The D's are one piece and you can only get the Torque thrust II's in the larger diameters.

Fwiw, according to AR the new style D's are two piece.

Those wheels look great on your car. they are my favorite wheel for a first gen. second choice are Ralleys. On a really stock car I guess Ralleys would be the way to go, but I think that a first gen with these wheels should not lose points for originality. I think period correct ought to cover it!

Re: What wheels are these? Very Nice

Unless they changed them recently all I have seen are one piece cast wheels with a machined outer lip? The TT2's have a cast center with a spun outer barrel that is welded together making it a two piece design.

It really doesnt matter though, if im wrong it wouldnt be the first time and im sure it wont be the last..

They are both great looking wheels! If you like the 15" look go with the D's. If your looking for a 16" or larger diameter look at the Vintage wheel works or TT2's.

Re: What wheels are these? Very Nice

Right now I am thinking 15's. I Wish I knew what size the wheels are on that picture I posted. Rear wheels look wider. I love how the wheel and tire fill the wheel well. I like a mean aggressive stance that retains a stock image. Not sure if I would like the wheel tire combination of a bigger wheel. Once the wheel gets bigger the tires become lower profile. If I saw a picture of a larger wheel and tire combo that looked great I might consider a size upgrade.

I agree that they look like 15/7 and 15/8.

Have you looked through the wheel-tire combos sticky at the top of the page? Lots of great looking cars with the specs/brand etc posted.
