15x8 Torq Thrust Ds

Hello. I currently have 15x7 Torq Thrust Ds on all four corners of my 68. When I got my wheels they didn't make 15x8s only 15x8.5s which stuck out past the lip of the quarter panel (I don't like the 70s look).

I noticed American Racing now offers the TTDs in 15x8 with supposedly the correct backspacing to prevent the tires from sticking out past the wheel opening.

Does anyone have any pics of the 15x8s on their car or maybe even the 16x8s? I am replacing the entire drivetrain/suspension on my car and need some more rubber out back Thanks!

Would you be interested in selling two of your 15x7's? Looking for a pair for my front and then pick up some 15x8's

I run Torque Thrusts on the rear with the 4.5" BS. They stay tucked with about 1/2" to 3/4" to spare.
