    In the late fifties, American Racing made big waves in the aftermarket wheel market with their iconic wedge-shaped Torq Thrust wheel, one of the few worldwide-known rims. For over fifty years, American Racing has been at the forefront of the industry. The American Racing wheels are offered in a full selection of black-powder coated and chrome design solutions, available in the sizes ranging from 15 inches to 24 inches.

    American Racing was also among the first to manufacture wheels featuring five spokes, which became one of the most popular designs. That design allows a wheel to weight much less, reducing thus the unsprung mass, which is the worst enemy of handling. It also allows the brakes to cool more efficiently, increasing their performance and giving you an opportunity to drive deep into turns without having to worry about overheating.

    First off, the car was on 14s with tires you could see the wire mesh from the radial. The Torque Thrust M combo was right on the money! The reps even called me back to make some adjustments to the set up. I chose 18s in the back and 17s in the front. Never, had I experienced online wheel and tire shopping. Now I won't even look at a tire store. CARiD, will b my first choice. After I received my shipment, I put them in the trunk, raced to the local craftshop and mounted them in less than 30 minutes. Now it looks like a classic muscle car!
