Appliance Aluminum Slots wrapped in savory BF Goodrich meats, surrounded by period flares and topped off with an incorrect body color.

OK.

Here's my vintage '70's style American Torque Thrusts. Click on my signature to see a full view of them on the '5.





Enjoy.

I had them on my first car, a '66 Malibu. We called them 'Sausage Mags'.

Can you use 17x8 wheels on the rear if you have offset trailing arms?

OOfxd,
The car is built on a SRIII tube chassis that uses C5 front suspension and a narrowed C4 rear. The offset on the C6 rim is different than the C5 so there was some additional work to get the OEM factory wheel to work vice repops. I really liked the style of the wheel and it's extremely lightweight....plus it was one of the only rims that would clear the massive 14" rotors and 6 piston calipers on all four corners. Here are some additional pics.
