American Racing Torq-Thrust Wheels are the ULTIMATE CHOICE for Hot Rods, Muscle Cars and Classic Trucks!
American Racing was founded in 1956 by Romeo Palamides, an innovative drag racer that originally set his sights on lightweight magnesium racing wheels. Although American Racing's first focus was on the racing market, the wheels quickly bled into the hot rod world. Seeing this market explode with popularity, American Racing responded with product lines that were designed for use on the street.
Although many designs rolled out in the 1960's and 1970's, including the American Racing LeMans, 200S, T70 and others, it was the Torq-Thrust that dominated in sales and popularity. The five-spoke wheels offered fitment on many applications, and the introduction of the Torq Thrust D offered fitment on Corvettes and other cars with disc brakes. Through the years, many things have changed at American Racing, but you can still get those classic designs that put the company on the map. Although some design refinements differentiate them from the true originals, today's Torq-Thrust and Torq-Thrust D wheels are still one of the best values in the custom wheel market. American Racing wheels feature a one-piece cast aluminum construction, and utilize a conical lug nut seat, meaning you can use standard acorn style lug nuts. Coker Tire is proud to offer American Racing Torq-Thrust wheels in a variety of sizes and styles, giving you a great selection of wheels to match up with a set of our specialty tires.
