american racing torque thrustII wheels are always nice, for a black car id choose the un polished ones with the cast finished, or chrome ithere way is nice... if i had to choose rims again instead of my torque thrust rims id choose boyd coddington smoothies 17X8 17X9 if i had to do it again...

The only Mustang I'd ever own is a Fender.

Re: any reccommendations?

It really comes down to "how much do you want to spend? There are so many choises out there. Now most of the better wheel companys offer choises in finish. The hot look is contrasting finishes from the hoop and center section. Polished, brushed, powder coated, mixed and matched anyway you want. Try and look at the finish section. Boze Wheels, HRE, offer similar choises but these wheels do get pricey. It just depends on what you're looking for and where your budget is at.

trex 70

I have 15x7 Torque Thrust II's all the way around on my 68'. However, I am leaning towards moving to 15x8" Rally Sports for the rear and 15x7" for the front. I am going to back burner this decision until closer to Spring 07.

As silly and old-school as this may sound, see if they don't still make "Roadstars" or "Road Stars"!!

They were/are a mulitple triangular holed steel chrome deep dish wheel that looked great to me!!

Talk about a great old-school look that just fits on our cars!!
