I’m not one to like super oversized rims but I’d say car looks awesome with those 17”s 👍🏼 Does fit nice

Wish tbis one was mine...just getting ready to start my next 70 and getting ideas together. My first 70 i had in the mid 80s was black cherry like the one pictured..it is one the short list of colors as are those wheels or just the stock SS wheels.

I'm totally biased....but I think these are the best wheels for 64-72 A Bodies. They've been around this long for a reason, me thinks.

I agree, 17 " Five spokes like TorqueThrust, Coys, Coodington and many other similar wheels with black walls tires, are the Cragar SS/RWL of todays wheels. Cragars and RWL's still have their place if 15's are needed but for the most part a thing of the past...Chrome 17" five spokes/black walls are the perfrect all around
combo it seems on 70-72 A-bodies in general. Not quite so much '69 an earlier though......

I went with custom wheels from Bonspeed on my last one and they looked great but not sure I want to shell out that much on wheels this time around...I like these as well. Nice blend of old school and modern
I'll be the one to buck the trend & vote for these instead of the TT2s.

TT2s or some copy of them come stock on factory Mustangs...overdone doesn't begin to describe these wheels at this point.

This is a great photo!
If possible, I'd go back to that some spot but with the Sun behind you and shoot it again. Looks great!
Good idea, and thanks for the compliment. That then would be an early morning sunrise photo. That Firemist Red(Mercedes) is a little bright in the direct sun, but in the shade it's just right. That spot with the green background and the red car (think Christmas colors) is pretty hard to beat. Even the dirt road adds too it.

Those look like the 17 inch version of the 69 SS wheels from ground up and almost all the REPRO houses too.

These
