American Racing Authentic Hot Rod Torq-Thrust 2.1

If you areAmerican Racing Authentic Hot Rod Torq-Thrust 2.1 looking for a wheel for your older hot rod or muscle car, then the American Racing Authentic Hot Rod Torq-Thrust 2.1 is definitely one to consider. Whereas most wheels that are being made today come in the higher offsets used by modern vehicles, the Torq-Thrust is available in the lower offsets needed by classic cars.  

The Torq-Thrust 2.1 comes in a polished aluminum finish. While a polished wheel does require some extra care and cleaning to retain its original shine, it will never peel, chip or bubble. And a polished wheel, when cared for properly, will provide a beautiful shine for years to come. 

For those looking to do a staggered tire fitment, the Torq-Thrust 2.1 does offer multiple widths in the 15" and 17" sizes, allowing for the use of wider rear tires.

Hi Tena, the 505 was the Original Torq-Thrust II. Those have been replaced by the Torq Thrust 2.1, which is nearly identical. Those are 515 part numbers. We have 5157863, which is 17x8 w/ 4.75" backspace and 5x4.75" bolt pattern. We do not have a 9.5" wide with 5.5" backspace. The 17x9.5" that we have has 6.5" backspace.
