American Racing is the original custom wheel company. Some say the aftermarket for light alloy wheels was created by the success of the American Racing Torq Thrust wheel. This wheel started its career on the drag strip, but soon found its way to the muscle street cars that came onto the roads in the first half of the 1960s. The Torq Thrust was designed with "tapered parabolic contour", as opposed to a semi-solid modular design, to increase brake cooling and make the wheel lighter. It has been developed over the years to accommodate disc brakes and new hub designs, but the basic style has not change. It was perfected from the very beginning.
The designs of American Racing are still being produced today, serving the market with wheels that fit American muscle and sports cars of both today and yesterday. The spoke styles of the original Torq Thrust wheels – the pointed, the round, the D-style and the daisy style of the 200S – are still with us, and there is no better way to give your vehicle true American Muscle or Sports Car character than fitting a set of American Racing Torq Thrust wheels.

The wheels and tires came quickly and look great installed. The sales person I ordered with was very helpful in finding the staggered tire sizes I wanted. Also the Hancook tires perform better than I expected.13 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you?
