OK I am looking at the American Racing Torque Thrust IIs. I want ti get them in a 17X9.5F and 17X11R. I can get the wheels for $1200. The tires??/ Well I can get the Choke-your-mommas(Yokohama) AVS Sports for around a grand....shipped(TireRack).

Face it, our wheels have been whored out on almost EVERY single GT sold these days. The AR TT-IIs will keep the general design(I still say they all copied Cragar's S/S) while giving me an advantage over the GTs in the stands out department.

But is $2,000 worth it? I feel like it's either do something to it or sell it time.

A few looks:


with the gas cap p/s'ed in:




I wanted these but at $2200 just for the wheels....I can't justify that much.



Sorry to all of the dial up peeps:(

If it makes you happy then it's worth it. I'm still planning on a wheel change myself. I keep getting distracted though...suspension...forged internals...killer tunes...vacation...race car...etc. I still like the Boyds I posted here a while back.

IMHO, I really like the stock Bullitt wheels. So what if the GTs are using them. They don't have the full BULLITT package which really makes the BULLITTs stand out in a crowd. 2 Grand is steep for wheels, to me anyway. Take the money and invest it in some good stock, then when the Bullitt is 10 years old you should have enough even more money to buy even more toys, or reinvest.

My $.02 worth.

Which Boyds? I looked at some of them as well. The last pic I posted was of the Budnik Mercurys.

here's a Vette with Smotthies


EDIT:
Yeh I looked at those and the Timeless

If you have the money (and won't go bankrupt) I say do it. Investing is a good idea, but keep in mind that the TOP mutual funds for the last year have made -15% returns. In other words, good luck with that for now... :smile: I personally think the Bullitt is more stealthy than standing out. It has VERY subtle changes to the untrained eye. Which is why people look at it and ask, "What's different?? I can't pick it out!" At least that's what I have experienced.

Withthe exception of those wheels in combination with the vette, I think the Bullitt wheels are better looking than the American Racing wheels. I like the grey inside. The wheels and the hood scoop are the reason why I bought this car.
