Posted by: malibusled ()
Date: March 03, 2012 06:58PM

Kyle (Brocklanders) and I took our trip to NY today to pick up a couple Clarks orders a friends beetle interior and my new wheels.

I ordered them off ebay, a great deal, came with wheel lugs and sockets.

Specifications;

15x7 American Racing Torque Thrust Wheels.
Front - BF Goodrich T/A 205/60/15
Rear - BF Goodrich T/A 225/60/15

I put them on tonight, I'm pretty happy about them.

Man! I love those Torque Thrust wheels!

Post the eBay link for the tire/wheel vendor if it's not too much trouble.

Thanks guys, I have always wanted this type of wheel, since long before I had this car.

I backed it outside today to hear the exhaust and I took a few pictures.

Why does your car look lower in the pics with rallye wheels? Did you replace springs?

Ron, yes I removed the stock springs that I had cut and replaced with HD Springs.

Looks great, that price is great too! I paid more than that for my Craigers and BFGs and wish I would have got the Torque Thrusts ever since I got them!

Ryan, I couldn't pass up the deal for that price. The free shipping, lug nuts and special socket also saved me a ton of cash.
