Default Which Torque Thrust Wheels for 69 Camaro?

Hello there,

Looking to find out which new Torque Thrust wheels replicate the old ones along with what offset for a stock 69 Camaro? I like the ones with the lighter color gray in the middle vs. the darker ones. I would like to go with 15's along with a wider style bias ply tire. Wondering if a bias in a 60 profile would fit all the way around? Or maybe some folks have gone through this and can recommend a good beefy bias ply tire, 70's would be fine as well.
I just love the look of these wheels and always wanted a set.

Thanks,
Anthony

Will G60 15's fit all the way around on a 69 Camaro?

The new (past ten years or so) Torque Thrust Originals (TTO) look best to me. American also makes the "crows foot" style of disc-brake wheel that's been around since the '90s. It has a rounder spoke vs. the "creased" spokes on the TTO. Depends on your car's stance and wheel widths as to what tires will fit but a 15x7 wheel would probably allow a good selection of tires. Get the diameter and width measurements of the tire and then make a cardboard mock-up and see how it fits in the wheel wells.

ET also makes a new-design five-spoke vintage wheel as does Vintage Wheel Works (V45). My advice would be that if you went with TTOs you should fog some argent silver flake spray paint over the spokes so they appear vintage. It really makes a difference.

----Bill,,,I got a rattle-can of knock-off wheel paint from Long Island Corvette and gave a set of new TTs a coat and they looked awesome! I also had the rims polished. Wish I had that set back......Bill S
