Rally wheels or 17" torque thrust

I like the original look but also like custom wheels. I have a red 67 RS and cant decide if I should pull the trigger and get the 17" torque thrust wheels and tires .What do you think ??

How about 17" rally wheels? If not the grey spoke TTIIs look great on a red car.

Re: Rally wheels or 17" torque thrust

How about a 16" TTII? In my opinion these Camaros need some rubber sidewall to look good.

Re: Rally wheels or 17" torque thrust

Please NO MORE polished TT's,the world has enough.
Try to be different,the grey-spoke TT's (or something like it)look so much nicer IMHO.Here's some options or go to www.newstalgiawheel.com or www.americanracing.com to see more options:

American Racing CL205 (18x8 4"b/s all-around)



American Racing CL200S (17x8 4.75"b/s all-around)



Vintage Wheel Works V40 (17x8 4.5"b/s front/17x9.5 5.5"b/s rear)



Just say no to polished wheels...unless your car is Black of course.

Re: Rally wheels or 17" torque thrust

I'll be dealing with this same issue later this spring/summer.
My 69 SS will be painted a charcoal metallic GM color, and it currently has Rallys on it, which to me are boring.
I really like the look of the TT II style wheels, and the gray spokes should work well with my paint color.

My question is this...
On a stock 69, what's the best setup for sizes? I personally don't care for the 17" wheels with smaller sidewalls...just doesn't look right to me. I like the looks of wider sneakers on the back, slightly more narrow on the front.
What's the widest rim/tire size combo I can put on the back without worrying about trashing a fender?

Thanks,
