I like 'em! Have you looked at the Torque Thrust IIs (also american racing, I believe)? Badass and very reminiscent of the old GTO wheels of yesteryear. I just got my stock rims chromed so I'll be keeping those for a while...

I don't like fake things. Fake bolts on wheels have always bugged me.

I agree fake bolts are no good. The wheel looks nice though. I would like to see some Torque thrust wheels for the GTO or even very close. I think some american style muscle car wheels would add some brawn to the goat.

I agree, get rid of the flare and bolts at the end of the spoke.

I like them but...that little logo in the middle suggests to me that they are heavy. Are these things cast?

I went over to AR's website and found that they aren't officially offered in any offsets to fit the GTO. Me thinks that Gravana Jim has a custom deal in the works.

I'd love some TorqueThrust II's

the torque thrust wheels are foose wheels.... at least from what i was told...
They are not. They're made by American Racing. They're a copy of the Halibrand 5-spoke. American Racing copied them decades ago and undercut Halibrand's pricing and made them the most popular aftermarket wheel in history.

Jim,

What's the deal with these? I'd definitely be interested in a set if the price was right.

I have to agree, I'd buy them if they aren't priced out of the market. They look good to me. When can you get them and how much are they going to cost us?

I'll go ahead and photoshop these on a goat later tonight if I remember.

Edit: here it is... I have a high rez version of this vehicle photoshopped into pieces so I can easily edit things like wheels, etc on it.

Looks good to me!
