I’m stepping up from 14” to 15” wheels on my 65. I like the torque thrust that are on it now, but I think I want to change. I have not pulled the trigger yet. I think I might try to photoshop these on to my car.

I like em if the centers are gray. I hate 99% of the black wheels out there.
Keep the torque thrusts. You can swap back and forth if you want. I have at least three different wheel/tire combos for my car that I swap around, depending on my mood.

They look similar to a wheel Holley is offering.
I think I would like them better if the through hole was the same shape as the rectangular slots.

Grey center Torque Thrust Ds with the machined aluminum rim or (my preference) 5 slot aluminum dish wheels.
Gotta agree
Gray center torque thrusts are the perfect wheel, they look great on everything.
BUT... I can definitely see getting tired of them after many years and wanting a change. I think Scott's choice is an excellent one, but wheel choice depends a lot on the person, and the car. I love my ancient centerlines, other people, not so much.

Oh, I love those historical artifacts from an era significant to some people of my generation and even more to people of generations before. I’m putting a set of E-T 5 slots out back on a Duster with a set of Kelsey Tire Goodyear Poly-Glas L60-15s. Unfortunately, it’s going to look “hillbilly day 2” with 14 inch Rallye’s painted dark charcoal metallic on the front unit I can swing a set of 15X5 5 slots up. But I’ll like it!

Forget what these are called and they do look good on most cars, but 15? I'd probably stay with 14, prefer the tire/wheel fill using them, but it is all visual preference. Good luck.
