Sirs,

I am new to GTO's and this forum so please excuse my naïve questions.

I just bought a Burgundy 1965 GTO.

It has the original stock wheels and original red line tires.

While I like the tires themselves, I do not like the wheels.

I am thinking of buying these 5 spoke, shiny silver rims from American Racing:

14 inch 14X7 Torq Thrust II Wheels Rims Early General Motors 5x4 75 4 0BS | eBay

Can anyone give me opinions on these wheels please?

I think they look too new. Although not saying they wouldn't look great on the car. I like the original Cragars which are period correct as I was told they first came out in `66.


I boned your other thread, please don't start more threads covering the same subject.

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.

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.

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!!
