IYO, which of this two wheel styles looks better?
I'm a bit inclined, but not 100%, to the second one, cause it doesn't looks like the TTs, which lots of cars around here have. What you Guys think?

I like the first one, but then I like TT II's the best.

I am installing TT's on my 69 Camaro, but actually if I had the choice between those two, I would go with the second ones! (Magneato), has a nice clean unique look.

I had decided on the TT/Boyd smoothie, until I saw 10% of the cars at a local cruise-in with that style. Took me another month to decide on a new wheel, and I am really happy with what I ended up with. I went with the Boyd Ronco wheels.

I've toyed with the idea of using something very close to the second style. TT's are like red or blue paint on a Camaro..... everyone has them.
But I can't get past the fact that the second style looks like and reminds me of an iron cross. You know, the West Coast Choppers logo? But they do have a small bit of 'bad ***-ness' to them.

Orench, I think either would be nice but, I think with your 68 the more rounded the body like a 67 or 68, the TT-2 would be my choice, if I had another 68. The smoothie 2's are on my sons S10 and althou he likes them, I don't care for the deep-dish look. For a 69 I would prefer the second one, it has a more square or sharp corners to it to match the more square look of the 69...Just my .o2...Good luck with your choice...Mike P.S. here is a picture of my sons S10,

None yet because I don't think we have seen your Camaro yet, or did I just miss it? Didn't you have to change the lug spacing on your hubs to fit the ford wheels? What did you do for center cap emblems?

#2 gets my vote...

Unhappy

Now this! If I want them relatively fast (2 weeks), I have to settle for the following sizes; 17x7 w/4.5 BS & 17x8 w/4.5 BS. If I want 4", 4.25" or 4.75" BS, I may have to wait something between 1.5 to 3 months. [img]graemlins/clonk.gif[/img] Can I live with those 4.5" of BS? I know the front can use a 1/8" spacer if needed, but my concern is the rear. I'm going to use 255-45-17 on the rears. What you Guys think???
