American Racing TT "M"

Has anyone used the American Racing TT "M" on their cars?

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/AR...861C/?rtype=10

I am considering using these in a 17 x 8 format on front and rear. They are a more affordable alternative than the AR TT II...but not sure how they will look on my '68. Does anyone have picture of these rims on their First Gen?

I haven't figured out what tire profiles I will be using yet. I'm guessing 235/45 for the front and 255/40 for the rear..?? Suggestions?

(I won't be making the purchase for a while, but just need to start budgeting and planning for the Fall).

Thanks!
Vic

TT's are very popular on Camaro's, I'm sure someone will have some pictures, maybe even in the sticky in this forum.

You will probably want to run 45's all the way around, otherwise there won't be enough sidewall on the rear tires. And you should have no problem with 235's and 255's. Some of us run 245's up front and 275's in the rear, but you can run into rubbing issues with the bigger sizes.

Re: American Racing TT "M"

Thanks for the response Brent and the good advice.

I have looked through the stickies and there are definitely pics of the AR TT's. They are all the TT II...which are really nice BTW. The ones I am looking at are their "M" line..which has some visual differences from the TT IIs. They actually look like they are a "lighter" over-all construction.

I was hoping that someone had the "M" line installed and could post a pic or some comment.

Thanks again!
Vic

Yes, I actually looked at the TT 'M' line before going with the Foose Legends. Someone might have pics here.

Thanks Andy,

I think they'll look good on a Gen 1 car, too. Seriously considering them..and as I said the price is a little better than the TT IIs.

Re: American Racing TT "M"

I am looking for a wheel that is not on everyother Camaro. Has anyone seen the Milanni-Bitchin or the Velocity 780 or the Viscera 729?
