    when I was at school I always dreamt of building a shaved black Mk3 Ford Zodiac with a BBF, Torque Thrusts and white-walls.

    Maybe I will one day :)

    Mark.

    I think they look good! Not everyone can afford RADIR wheels as they are pricey. I do like RADIRS myself and plan to have some one day but if your wallet isn't thick enough I think this setup works. Here is my brother's old truck with WWW and torque thrust wheels.

    The well informed called it right. WWWs and mags is an honest tribute to the days of the show rod. Really nice 60s vibe. I personally love those days and the car's unique looks from back then. Clearly a chrome reverse and WWW are the most popular way of expressing it but the mags work too. If that's where you're going you can't miss. Mags and blackwalls are more drag/muscle looking, or even more "street rod". Redlines are also musclecarish and thin whites are more lowriderish. Keep in mind that these are all my opinions...which you asked for.

    times two. And definitely not on torque thrust D's! Correct for a for a circa 2000-2010 look, but not sixties look.

    Personally, most of the time I think they look like ASS - and not a nice smooth pear shaped ass, but a big fat hairy one.

    A few cars pull it off sure, but most of the time it just looks conflicted.

    Here's an example of a truck I sold, I ran it with blackwalls, the guy that bought it ran right out and put the biggest WWW radials he could find on it (does it with every car he owns)

    Another Hamber owns it now:

    Again, just my opinion, your mileage may vary.

    Haha thanks. I ran blackwalls, the next guy ran WWW's, looks like the present owner went back to blackwalls. The truck was pretty much unchanged other than that.

    I dig your Effie too, although I'm also not a big fan of www's on any truck... although I did run portawalls a friend gave me on my '53 F100. I'm running blackwalls on the new Cragar Eliminators on my '55.

    I guess it's all just a matter of personal taste.

    What's wrong with these? And why not traditional? (A word nearly as annoying as rat rods by the way) So the pic is from '61 then it's period correct ain't it? I like it. The car also!
     
  22. I personally don't care for whitewalls and Americans. Just my opinion.

    If you don't like Americans maybe you should go back to what ever goddam country you're from!




    Oh wait, did your mean the wheels? :D:eek:

    didn't like wide whites with Torque thrusts in 2006 and like them even less in 2010.
     

  25. hahah!!!
     
  26. HAHAHAHA! Love me long time!
     
  27. I was worried these wouldn't look good, but they were in the garage, so I tried them out. So far, lots of folks have given compliments.

    Dude... you drag this thread up from 2006, and want to know if it's okay to have the wrong wheel and tire combo on your car NOW, and then blast with a "I'll build my car how i fucking want to damn it!!" statement?

    It doesn't matter what year or when.. fifty years from now.... they still don't go well together, (with VERY few exceptions) and the cars shown here clearly illustrate that... Stevie Wonder could see it. Do some homework instead of trying to bend the class to your version.

    If you are blinded by shiny chrome banana spokes and white walls--- especially radial whitewalls -- and think it looks good, then you don't fully understand what you are looking at, and THAT is the dilution of "fads" and what makes a car a great traditional car or a traditionally-inspired car.

    Why not include all shiny wheels like Weld wheels, 14" rally wheels, or Eagle five stars... as long as they are shiny and wrapped in a whitewall, it has to be traditional, right?
