Question

I was wondering which wheel is better, as they both appear almost alike, the American Eagle 211 or Torque Thrust II's.

Black69, how much are you finding the Eagles for? I found a dealer who will sell me a set of 4 Torq Thrust ][ Series 505 Polished for $950 SHIPPED to my door. That is for two 17x8 (4.75 backspace) And two 17x9.5 (custom 5.5 backspace).

I found the price of $220 a wheel for both sizes but haven't called to see about shipping prices. I found that price on this wedbsite.

These wheels reallly look like the torque thrust except for the cap.

Brian, check out the Fuzion tire also. Lot of good reports on them along with good prices.

Ahh yea at $220 thats $880 + shipping, could be a few bucks cheaper over the $950 deal possibly, only issue is the backspacing and making sure its correct. I'll probably go the American Racing route to play it safe.

Fuzion ZRi (Ultra High Performance Summer) 320AA
235/45WR17 - $96 at Tirerack
255/45WR17 - $104 at Tirerack
275/40WR17 - $111 at TireRack

Yes that looks like another good solution, I am probably going to go with the
Kumho ECSTA 711 (High Performance Summer) 320AA
for now though just to save a few bucks and play it safe on the rear size until I am comfortable with the clearances.
235/45HR17 - $76 at Tirerack
255/45HR17 - $80 at Tirerack
Comes to $352 shipped which is an awesome price for 320AA rated H speed rated (up to 130mph) tires.
