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.

If you are looking for truly classic custom wheels, there is no place better to go than to American Racing®, the company that invented the custom wheel! American Racing Equipment Inc. was started in 1956 by drag racer Romeo Palimedes, making magnesium rear wheels for dragsters. Their first custom wheels for road cars were introduced in the beginning of the 1960s, with the Torque Thrust, introduced in 1963 considered to be the wheel that created the custom wheel market. The Torque Thrust is one of the most copied wheels ever. American Racing is still producing the wheel, adapted to modern car hubs. American Racing has maintained its pioneering spirit all through the years, and is still leading in the segments of the custom wheel market serving racing and classic car enthusiasts. Muscle cars and American sports car, especially Corvettes, just don't look right with wheels from brands lacking the heritage of American Racing. American Racing designs and engineering features have stood the test of time. The company is confidently rolling into the future on traditional, contemporary and futuristic wheels, all carrying decades of experience, expertise and tradition. The American Racing product line is characterized by design elements borrowed from racing and by competitive strength-to-weight ratios. The wheels come in staggered fitments, modern finishes and in both classic and contemporary sizes.

Looks Great on Just About Any Car.
I have had these wheels on my Mercury now for about 10 months. The wheels are beautiful and the chrome is much easier to manage then the aluminum torq thrust II. My only problem has been that I need to now buy a replacement wheel thanks to ODOT not filling in potholes. Not the fault of the wheels or tires, just a fact of living in north ohio. Honestly, if you have a 1992 to 2002 Panther platform, this might be the best setup for a streetable but good looking car. 235/55/R17 PILOT SPORT ALL SEASON 4 Tires VN615 TORQ THRUST II by AMERICAN RACING. 17" x 7", 0 Offset, 5x114.3 Bolt Pattern, 83.06mm Hub. Gas-a-Just Gas Shocks MOOG Aftermarket springs.

Great Service!
I ordered a set of these with a set of Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires and had them shipped to my home. Each tire and wheel were well wrapped, very nicely, plus they put a light coat of protection on the wheel. They fit perfectly and look super sharp! If I ever need new wheels in the future I WILL return and buy them from CARiD! Oh yeah the lugs were free as well as the mounting and balancing.
