  2. Thats good looking Scott, I didn't know you were on here! I used to order quite a bit from you when I worked at A&A in Rapid City.

    good to see someone picked up where american racing dropped the ball..........:rolleyes: i remember a buddy and i were talking to a "big wig" from american racing at louisville back in the late 90's......we mentioned they needed to repop this wheel in aluminum......." but hey , we have these new 15x4 torque thrust II's coming out":confused:

    Thanks for making us some more HotRod wheels Scott.
     
  13. And the really crazy part is that the mass merchandisers have all gone to conical seat as opposed to mag shank lug style and on my gasser with 5/8 wheel studs that's not a happening thing. And I wonder how the tech boys at the track are going to view it as well. I called American, Rocket, etc and they all have gone that way, said that less then 1% would be impacted with this decision..........I've been told for years I could be a 1%er.........

    Looks like a cragar SS. $400 bucks is alittle to steep for me and in the picture the polished wheel looks blurry. I think it needs polished alittle more to make it smoother.

    I've bought polished ET's before and there is nothing wrong with the finish.

    Before anyone gets pissy I was just making an observation from the picture. I know summit sells some wheels know that looks like weld wheels but the finnish isnt nearly as good.

  21. I love how corporate jerks think they know what we want! That is too funny!
     
  22. Just raise the price at Viva to offset the wheel price! :D

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Personally I think they are about as good as it gets. I have great experience with Team III, they make great products.

    Scott, I was planning to order a pair of 16" Fuelers, but just noticed 16" Vintage 5 is in the works, any idea how much the 16x10's will cost us?

    Great looking wheel, would love to have a pair on the front of the Falcon but... out of my price range for now, I will put them on my bucket list of things to do.

    Does the polished one have the smooth lip? If that's what you offer then its what I been looking for. I was trying to find a set of skinnies to match my 60's Crestline 5 spokes I have for the back , they look like a good match. I would like to see it with the center cap off.:D
    By the way they look wonderful.
