Centerline wheels


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, i have kinda been searching my local cragslist for wheels for my 71 mach and honestly im having mixed emotions on a set of centerline wheels that i found. I have been looking for a set of American Racing Torque thusts but havent really been sucessful. anyways if anyone runs them, or has seen them on a 71-73 please post up a picture so i can make a better judement call. I really like the wheels, however i am having a really hard time invisioning them. please feel free to leave comments about them and what your opinions are. and please as i said, post pictures if there is any imformation i shuld know.

Actual Torque Thrusts, or Torque Thrust "D"? Torque Thrust 2? Torque Thrust M? Gotta be more specific.

 

There are a couple of cars on this site with Torque Thrusts, and Torque Thrust-like wheels. I'm actually planning either Torque Thrust Ds, or some [very similar] Rocket wheels myself.

Except that I prefer 15" wheels with more sidewall (old school):

Mine will be in Light Pewter, of course (hence the Photoshopped version in my signature pic).

I've got the American Racing Torque Thrust II on my 72 Mach, 18x9.5 on the back with 275x40 tyres and 18x8 on the front with 245x40 tyres. I think it looks good and matches well with the blue paint..

Anything is possible, It just takes time and MONEY....

Yea the Torque thursts are the ones im wanting, with the powder grey center and polished lip. But as i said i am having a hard time finding them in my price range. that is why i am looking at the Torque thursters from centerline, the ones in the link.

My thoughts would be unless you need them right now, keep looking because something will come along. If you settle for something you are not sure about you will always wonder what if.....but on the other hand you can always change them in the fiture and selll those. Just my thoughts

The first are 15" Auto/drags and the second are the 17" billets. The third are my 20" Fooses that were slated for the car once the suspension was dialed in.


Oops. Here it is with the 20's. Have to say that 17" wheels may be the best all around diameter for our 'Stangs. IMO.

Here's a set of Torque Thrust D's with the gun metal grey inside and machined lip. They are 15". They are what i always wanted and saved up to get exactly what i wanted. I too like the old school 15" look. Let me know if you need any other pics up close or something I might have some more somewhere.

Here's one I like

 

I really like that silver car and its profile. The lack of the lower stripe on the '71 is the same as my car as well. Seems to clean it up a bit.

Please don't take this the wrong way, but I just saw photos of your Mach in the gallery - and the original dog dish centers mixed with those slightly smaller aftermarket trim rings look absolutely stunning!

You'd have to pry those off over my cold dead body if it were my car. Only thing I'd do is paint the rims blue to match the body, but either way - that look gets my heart pounding just a bit faster :D

How to buy a '71-73 Mustang:

Rule #1: Assume all classic car sellers are guilty until proven innocent.

Rule #2: No classic car dealer is ever innocent; thus, they are all guilty.

Rule #3: Buy from trustworthy people: Fellow forum members. Visit 7173Mustang's For Sale forum.

Yup, I gotta admit that the dog dish rims look kinda sexy. Although I am a sucker for 5-spokes it just seems that everybody out there has them. Not that that fact would keep me from running them on mine too but the dog dishes are different.

Depends on the car. A Mopar with dog dishes is to die for!!

For what it's worth, here's what mine used to look like with the classic TT "D" in 7x15 inch and 255/60/15.
