I was looking at several wheels for my car and the Edelbrock 409 was among them. I haven't seen them in person and Baer Racing wasn't sure if they would fit the bigger brakes on my car? I presently have 11.8" rear disc brakes and I'm planning on Baer's 12.1" front disc brakes.
I looked at many 16" wheels and felt the Edelbrock wheel was a good value compared to to many others. Wheels design is so subjective and everyone likes something different.
I like the Vintage Wheel Works " Vintage 45" design - it is the same size and offset. Rusty was great about answering all my questions and it looks like a great product.
The wheels have the correct type vintage look to them. For me the larger Torque Thrust II's have a spoke that is a bit too sexy.
I bought them directly from Vintage Wheelworks. If you Rusty I referred you they will forward a $100 finders fee that I'll split with you. That way I can take a road trip up to Santa Barbara and you can see and feel the suspension setup.
