Reinventing The Wheel ... Again
American Racing Wheels are legendary, period. so how can they offer something new to compete with their infamous torq-thrust wheels? easy, they reintroduce one of their rare, short-lived versions of it. The original t70r wheel is rumored to have only been built for a short time between '69 and '71 before phasing it out, but now it's back, thanks to the exhaustive work of american racing's Brand Manager Chris Coddington. "american racing has a long history of building the most authentic hot rod wheels on the market and it's exciting for us to reach back into our archives and reproduce the classic t70r," said Chris. the t70r wheel features the famous tapered parabolic spoke shape of the torq-thrust, outlined with a distinctive flange, along with some engineering improvements from the original design that make it very unique and a hit with true hot rod, musclecar, and classic truck fans. get hip with american racing at www.americanracing.com or call 310-761-5230.
