    Looking at Torque Thrust Orignal Wheels #vn309. Wheels for Less in Texas tells me that none of these wheels will clear my factory 11" disc brakes unless I go to a 16". What about it guys?

      pppfffft those 11" disc brake rotors and calipers are designed for 15" wheels. youll never get a 14" wheel on them without a spacer. I have 11" disc brakes on my charger and I have yet to find a 15" wheel that won't fit including torque thrusts

          I have 15x8 with a 4 1/2 " back space on the front . I've also had 15x7 3 1/2" b.s. , my centerline's are 15x7 with a 4" Bs . my 15x7 cop car wheels have a 4 1/4 backspace. these are all on the big 11" disc brakes off a 77 charger that I put on my 74. I've never heard of any 15" wheel not working on the big discs

            One of the best looking wheels out there that is the closest to the old magnesium wheels. Did you paint or coat these wheels with anything? The wheels in your picture have that great aged dark look of a magnesium wheel in lieu of the ET Vintage V wheels new shiny finish.
            Looking at the same wheel for front of my car.

              Another vote for ET III Wheels. I left the edges polished and hit the center with "Cast Blast" from Eastwood. The paint I used has more clear in it than I like. I may shoot them again with a flat, dark grey. The wheels on that red '64 Plymouth are beautiful. The car is second to none! LOVE IT!! Frustration ready for 2018.JPG

                Thank Frustration! Your rides are not too shabby either! Lol! I actually didn’t use Eastwood cast blast. It was another brand. I’ll post a pic here shortly. It is flat and I really like the look. Thanks again for the compliment. Hope you get the look you want!

                Read an article where some took NAPA Graphite Spray lube and coated wheels with that and let it dry. I was to give it a simulated magnesium look.
                Thanks again.
