Take an older car...add wheels

This is another from the BJ auction but I think it is sharp. Adding some wheels can make almost any older car look good. I always thought these Olds left a little to be desired with their boxy look but with a set of wheels

Kevin/Killer, our age is showing!! Looks like a copy of the old Craeger Mags that fit right into the era. And that Starfire was a mid size than. Big brother was the cruiser!!

Trees...close to a Cragar. Torque Thrust II. I was kind of tired of seeing the TT II's because everone had them. Now with the millions of other wheels on the market I got a set and put on my truck. Seems like around here everyone runs the same style of wheels. After TT II's ran their course I got mine. Now there are only a few rides with them on. LOL!! Seems like I'm always behind the times.

I think that looks sweet. Upsized cragars sort of look. I still love the American rims with the dark silver spokes the most...

I'm not feeling the torq thrusts II on that car, and white letters are for trucks.

Don't get me wrong the new Torq Thrusts look great, but SO MANY people run them that they've lost alot of the "check that out" factor for me.

Boy oh boy, do I see a gen gap or what?

I think those TTII's with the RWL look HOT ! I'm not much for blackwalls. Especially the rubberbands on the 22's. YUCK! I have to say that 15" wheels are the biggest I would go. I HATE seeing a '32 with blingers. Almost like spinners. Keep em on the imports! Great place for 'em!


Sincerely,
Aged Flatuence

(Pay no attention to the balckwalls on my chevelle- the rwl didn't look any better with the white paint)

Thats a nice looking car Kevin. It really is amazing what a set of nice wheels will do for a car (or truck).
