Has anyone tried the Billet Specialties

FastLane or the Intro Hammer wheels? If so, could you post a pic.

I'm deciding between these two (I think). This is by far the hardest decision so far.

Also, due to cost I will go with a 15 inch wheel. Is there anything I need to know on fitment? I'm thinking of a 15 by 7 front and 15 by 8 rear. The tire size will be 265 60 15 front and 265 50 15 rear in probably a BG Goodrich T/A radial.http://www.billetspecialties.com/ite...id=132&pid=721

Re: Has anyone tried the Billet Specialties

Unfortunately, pricey wheels always seem to loose about 35 to 40% of there value when you mount them on your ride. I presently have chrome Torque Thrust wheels on my 68 and switched to Rally Sport wheels that keep in touch with when the car was built. Potential buyers tried to hose me on the price for the used Torque Thrust Wheels. Not everyone has the same tastes as yourself. You may want to reconsider what you put on your 68'.

Re: Has anyone tried the Billet Specialties

I like Rally wheels and torque thrust but these have caught my eye when browsing for wheels. The wheels will be a permanent fixture and I won't be selling my car so resale is of no importance to me.

I was just wondering if anyone has installed these on their cars and if someone could post a picture. I want to see them on is all.

The thing about wheels is they mount on and off pretty quickly so rallys are always there if I want them and they're quite reasonable on pricing.

Thanks for your advice.

Thumbs up Re: Has anyone tried the Billet Specialties

You will find that the same size tire, but in a 60 and a 50, the 50 will be shorter so you may need to rethink your tire combination.

I dearly loved the old E-60 and L-60, (14"), combination I ran on my car for years..

But it's totally Old-School today...

Re: Has anyone tried the Billet Specialties

Pro tc,

I'd be happy with your exact set up. My car is stock height, is yours? If it is, what tire dimensions did you go with. I love the profile and wheels. I might end up copying you if that's okay. I was checking out the GTX01's but I really like yours.
