That is about the Ball park price on these wheels, You would think for a wheel
that has been around for a long time that price would come down a little
but I guess its because they are still a very popular wheel to put on just about
anything.

I have Boyd Codington junk yard dog wheels on mine for about the same price
as the torque thrust but are slightly different, might be another choice.

Another good choice at a reduced cost is the Boss 338 wheels. I just put
these on my lowered 92 GMC truck. These wheels are very easy to keep clean,
compared to a custom billet wheel and give a great look to any ride. I
don't have pictures of the truck yet to post.

Reds73 is the car that inspired me, that is one sweet ride.

My wife (Goldielocks) says 235/60-16's on 16X8 wheels are just the right fit



Lowered 1" front/rear, no ground clearance issues, cheap VR speed rated tires.

I've NEVER seen a C-3 that didn't look good with TTII's.

Yes, thought the 17's were evident. I plan on going to a 275 on the rear when I wear these out to beef it up a little.

If it is any help... my 17x8 TTII wheels have an -11mm offset and a 4" backspace. They fit my 1980 with stock trailing arms and the stock brakes. I've since changed the brakes to SSBC calipers and rotors and still have no clearance issues with the wheels at all. Hope this helps.

I would not use the 4.5 inch backspace. Get 4.0 inch backspace instead. Your OEM 15s are 15x8 with 4.0 backspace. If you go with 4.5 inch backspacing, you'll suck the wheels-tires in 1/2 inch, and I think that makes the car look hokey-ghetto-funny-donk.

For Corvette, think wide and low.

Not the best pics, but maybe a cheaper alternative : Coys C5 (225 55 17). Rear longer spring bolts will be installed soon, the front looks ok.

Gunther, I love the stance, what's the backspacing and width on your wheels? Also, what tire size front/rear?

Did you need modified trailing arms for the 18 * 10's ?

Regards

I had already installed offset trailing arms on the car as I had some 15" vintage slotted mags I was going to use and would have needed them for those. Changed my mind to the TT wheels. They very well may have fit with just moving the parking break bracket on the standard arms as others have done.
