17" TT2's pics?
#1
I'm considering purchasing this wheel/tire combo and I'm wondering if someone is running something close in 17" on their coupe and post a pic or two. Here is the link:

Thanks.

Im not yet but, I am considering a similar wheel. I'm looking at a more traditional Torque Thrust wheel. 17x8 with a 4.5" BS seems to be a typical size for the front and 17x9 or 9.5" with a 5 or 5.5" BS seems popular. I'm going to use a 17x9.5 with 5.5" BS so I can fit a 275/40-17 in the rear.

I'm planning on running 15" TT2s on mine - which will pretty much look like this (but with actual Ford Light Pewter paint, not the Photoshopped color I did):

The 17"s should look something like this:

Hope this helps.

I'm diggin' the 17" TT2 look. I just put Firestone Indy 500 235/60R15s on the 71 4-speed car with the dog dishes. Those tires were just discontinued in that size. It looks like for the 15" tires BFG is the only manufacturer left in the game. If I gave a hard time finding the 15" in the future then 17x8 are what I'm going with.

I think yours are either Torque Thrust Ms, or maybe even stock Ford Mustang Bullitt rims. Definitely made for late-models with all that offset, though. Wink

Cool, I have been considering the Torque thrust wheels as well. I like my wheels, but was concerned that because they were 15's I would have a hard time finding a 'big' enough tire for them. The ones on it are too small for my taste. 215/50/15 on the front and 225/50/15 on the rear. i think if I step up to like a 245/50(or 60?)/15 on the rear and maybe move the 225/50/15's to the front. What do you guys think?

I think Cooper Cobras are still available. My brother just bought 4 for his Ranchero. He didn't want to pay BFG price.
