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 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'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...

What size are you thinking. I like the 2nd one, especially if 17" or bigger

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.
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???

Don't settle for less than what you want even if it adds time to get them!! Once they are on the car you don't want to be kicking yourself for not waiting a few weeks. It's 4-6 weeks here for most custom orders and you have the comfort of knowing you didn't get a set of wheels off the shelf...

Had Mosers convert everything to the Ford bolt pattern and added their 1/2" studs and Althread bolts

I'm gonna run the Pony-Car center caps!!

I like the second wheel much better (the one on the right).

I agree with Dennis wait and get what you really want. That time will pass reaf fast and if you settle you will be stuck with the size/look you know you really don't want. It will never look right to you.
