All nice but these I particularly like. Nothing like a true vintage product.

See this web site, (under American Racing). Apparently they were Ansen's version of the original Torque Thrust. Seems like American Racing and Wheel Vintiques still make 'em.

Thanks all! They ALL look good! I really hate cleaning the KO's. No matter what I use even the wesleys bleach white and a brush they still look dirty. When I first purchased the 64 it had the torque thrust chrome rims on it, they were so easy to clean. Also just want to change it up a bit.

Thanks.....Sixty4

I also like that wheel but I think the tire and wheel combo make it. The white letter tires break up the tire and makes it more proportional...at least to me. too much black tire makes the rim look smallish--perfect look for a 15" wheel

I forgot, you'll need a frame to go with it. There are several options. If you still want a traditional looking frame then Street Shop Inc.makes a nice looking one. http://www.streetshopinc.com/c4midyear.html
