geeteeohguy If you prefer the brighter look, you can't go wrong with Cragars. If you're rich, you could install a reproduction set of Hurst wheels and really turn some heads!!

Rukee Not positive, but I think mine are like 4 1/2 to 4 3/4". Others may chime in too.

Rukee, what is the correct back spacing for a 65, or do they differ from car to car?

Tridentine Thank you GTO Guy, but I really prefer the brighter look.

geeteeohguy How about the old style American Racing Torque Thrusts in aluminum with the dark grey spokes? Period perfect and they are an excellent wheel, too.

Tridentine Are these wheels appropriate for a 1965 GTO, and is this a fair price for a set of 4?:
Cragar 08 61 s s Super Sport Chrome Wheel 14"x7" 5x4 75" Set of 4 61716 4 | eBay

Thank you.

Rukee The rims on my `65 are the style. If the picture in the snow is when the car is Blue Charcoal, yes they are Cragars, if the car was white, then those were just steel wheels.
I bought these at Summit Racing, 14" on the front and 15s on the back.

Tridentine Rukee,
I like the wheels on your picture of your 65 in the snow.

Are they Cragers?

Tridentine Thanks Rukee.

What do Cragers from '66 look like?
