Torque Thrust II Fitment 3.75" BS

For my 67, got a good deal on a set of 4 TT II's that are 15 x 7 with a 3.75" backspace and 235 60R15 tires. Standard drum brakes and new 6308 Moog front springs.
Will they fit with no rubbing?
Thanks

Re: Torque Thrust II Fitment 3.75" BS

15x7 with 235/60/15 front and rear with the backspace you have.

I think your good to go with the rear but might get a rubbing on the front. My rear is empty and car is gutted, front has enngine and trans only.

These are loners because I thought of buying them.









This is what I went with for a wheel. 15x8 for the rear 4.5 inch back space witha trial fit 275/60/15 (going with 255/60/15 BGF TA) and the front 15x7 with 4.25 back space. no pics of this one, I will be going with 235/60/15 BFG TA.

Re: Torque Thrust II Fitment 3.75" BS

Thanks Joe, the pics really give me a good idea of what it might be and you are right, the front might be a problem, looks like they might even stick out beyond the fender lip?
Just curious, what springs do have in the front?
I just put on Moog 6308 springs as recommended by David Pozzi and with my current 15x7 wheels with 4.00 BS and 215/65R15 tires it sits pretty good.
I now have 255/60R15's in the rear
I am thinking the front wheels with 3.75 BS might work but I might have to go to a smaller front tire?
Have Rallye wheels now, just looking for a change.
Thanks again,
Steve

Re: Torque Thrust II Fitment 3.75" BS

Not sure if this helps or hinders, but I have TT II's 17X8's in front with 225/50 and they fit with 4" of backspace. I installed the DSE upper control arms so it changed things a little. I lowered it 2" and really had to bring the top camber in but it works. Heck, I only drive 100 miles a month so the tires should last 10 years...lol.

Re: Torque Thrust II Fitment 3.75" BS

Those pics are with QA1 coil overs on the front. I have hotchkiss springs on the front now and I have my hotchkiss springs in the rear in the pics with the black primer on top and the 275 fit.

Yes I think the tire sticks out alittle in the fender but have seen 225 and 215 60 15's on these and they work fine.

With my hotchkiss springs in I had Vett Rally 15x8 with 4 inch back space in the front and rear with 235/60/15 and had very slight rubbing under hard bumps or dips in hilly roads on the outer part of the upper fender lip of the wheel house.

This is a pic. Hotchkiss springs in front....stock original 67 mono leaf spring in the rear.

Re: Torque Thrust II Fitment 3.75" BS

I'm running 15x7 TT-D's with 3.76BS and 225/60's up front with Hotchkis 2" drop springs and my wheel wells are full. With the drop springs I don't think I could get 235's to fit.

Re: Torque Thrust II Fitment 3.75" BS

Steve – The 3.75” back space wheels are going to be close up front, those sizes are common and fit other GM’s better. The better fitting wheel for the front is a 4.5” back space with a 235 and 4.75” with a 255.

Re: Torque Thrust II Fitment 3.75" BS

Here's a pic of my '68 with TQ Thrust "D"'s 15x7 and BFG's 225/60x15 front and rear. Plenty of room. CCP frt 1" drop springs, and 1 1/2" drop Hotchkis rear leafs. 235/60x 15's could rub on the front.

Re: Torque Thrust II Fitment 3.75" BS

OK so I got another new deal on some Torque Thrust II's for my 67

15x7 front with 3.75 backspace and 215 65R15 tires with new 6308 springs that lowered it 2 inches from original
15x8 rear with 3.75 backspace and 235 60R15 tires

Front fits good with no rubbing and no issues at all

Rear fits good with no issues but if I had a choice again I would go with the 4 1/2 backspace and 255 60R15 tires for a better look.
Rear is not lowered with original mono springs and 15PSI in my air shocks
The 235 tires look small because I took off 255's that were on Rallyes

Will try to take some pics
