American Racing 17" x 8" Polished Torq Thrust II Wheel for 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1971, 1972 and 1973 Mustangs.

Installation of the 17" x 8" Torq Thrust II wheels is a great way to update your classic Mustang with modern styling. The 17" wheel really fills the fender wells compared to the factory wheels present on the 1965-1973 Mustangs. Although larger in size, Torq Thrust II's retain classic muscle car styling. Torq Thrust II's are reminiscent of the classic Bullitt wheels but with much more distinguished spokes. The spokes feature greater curvature which is aided by the large 17" diameter.

Tech Tip: This wheel is designed to fit most 5-lug 1965-1973 Mustangs with the original 5 x 4.5" bolt pattern and 4.25" of backspacing. However, you should always measure and verify clearance before ordering aftermarket wheels, as modifications may be necessary for fitment.

Nearly 60 years ago, a California speed shop set out on a mission to provide a single set of lightweight, custom drag racing wheels. American Racing set the standard that launched the custom wheel industry and the company's roots date back to the golden era of hot rodding. Founded in 1956, American Racing started manufacturing magnesium and aluminum racing wheels.

*For 1965-1968 Mustangs, 17"x8" wheels are recommended for use on the rear only. Wider wheels can rub on the wheel openings when turning.
