Torq Thrust D - center cap ?

I made up my mind and decided i want a new look for the Chevelle ; So i decided to sell the Cragars to a friend and get a set of Torq Thrust D s staggered 15x7 and 15x8 ... can not decide on a center cap or leave without for a racing look ...anybody have any pics ? I saw that some Yenko s had the Torq Thrusts D ...did they come with the center cap ?

Center caps ..





Let me know your opinions ...


Here a pic with the Cragars ...looking forward for the new look !

I'm running a staggered set. They don't look complete without the caps.

Re: Torq Thrust D - center cap ?

Great looking '69 Oliver! Those look like the original round spoke cragars?? I'd keep those and grab another set of your TTs. It's so nice to go back and forth, things tend to get old after years of seeing it don't they? The Yenkos never received TTs, they were outfitted with Atlas wheels, a TT type wheel. If you want the true TTs, the new stuff is close but has few changes. I'm not entirely sure the screw/fastener layout is the same on the old style center caps vs the new shallower version. If they are, I'd opt for the old version. Those two style wheels look fantastic on a '69, along with the Keystone Klassics or KustomMag if you can find a set, look very sweet on a '68 and later Chevelle.
Fun stuff, buyng and fitting new shoes isn't it?

The Black should look good against your Orange Chevelle and maybe also Grey

Re: Torq Thrust D - center cap ?

Personally, I prefer with the center caps. It looks more finished. ...but... I prefer the Cragar SS's to the Torq Thrusts, sorry...

Re: Torq Thrust D - center cap ?

Keep in mind there are two different size caps. Early wheels had a different screw pattern. And put a little grease on the screw threads. Keeps them from seizing up in the wheel.

Oliver,
I'm gonna miss the Cragar look as your car reminded me of my long gone 69 SS396 (except dusk blue) that had Cragars too.
Anyway get the center caps it will just look unfinished without them.

Re: Torq Thrust D - center cap ?

Oliver, I used black/red SS stick on emblems on mine to match the car.

I'm not sure these are the correct size but: https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-CHEVROL...sAAMXQCtlRO383

So yes to center caps. Here's the funny part, those small center caps have very little surface area, but when I put the black/red SS stickers in place of the originals, the car took on a different look. Now, I'm not a design person, but how can two small circles in the center of the wheels make a difference when looking at the car from the side, with all that surface area? ? It does.

Anyway get the center caps because without them every time you look at your new wheels you will see something missing

Just like the red background SS 427 vs black SS 396 emblems....IMO, little bit of red stood out !
