Used change to wheels on the coupe all the time. Here's a lousy shot of a combination I had on for a short time. Actually only think i took a couple of photos of it in this guise. The other one was a side shot, but I can't find it.

Geoff, your coupe looks brand new in that photo.

The only way this works is with the gray centers and polished lips. Full polish and white walls looks gay.

Gray is crap-only used on new American Racing mags. Originals were magnesium, so if you have a new pair, paint the centers charcoal or black. Looks freakin' sweet.

I like full polish straight spoke Americans with medium or thin stripe ww's.
Cast look seems like it looks better with black tires (Like on Deron Wright's
3 window) I also dont really don't like the Torqe Thrust D you can get new now, Pat Ganahl told me they're the same as the old ones, But I can't find any pix in my magazine collection of a spoke that curves from lug center to rim in an early 60's era photo. The new TTO wheel looks bitchen, I'd like to
see that full polish.

Cast is a race look, polish is a show look, but every car is different. There's
no real rules, just good taste!

'tsawright, they make both wheels and tires.

the tires are an all new bias ply not recap and a bit on the hard side compound wise but the white stays a brilliant snow white like a whitewall should

Personally, I feel that TT's and whitewalls are from two different eras, with the exception of the thumbwalled slicks.

I'll agree that they may not look as bad with the duller, "cast finished" wheels, but the fully polished ones with wide whites just don't look too good...too bright or something. 'Course I do have a warped perception on things.

If you really want to barf...I've been seeing an awful LOT of Weld wheels with wide whites, especially in the mid-west. Please tell your older, misguided friends that this is a horrible shame to bring upon an automobile.
