Stano, Google exactly that '65 Impala with Torque Thrust wheels'
I just did and got a lot of images, not all Torque Thrust but certainly quite a few.

I did 1965 impala danube blue and torque thrust. and did not get one with the torque thrust. there was one couple of years ago but did see it come back.

Our daughter and husband are going to build one. She saw a club members 65 danube blue when she was about eight or nine and still wants one.

we will keep searching, hopefully get a picture of one.
thank you for your help..

thank you

aghaga,
What size wheels are those? I like that look a lot. I've been debating whether to run 16" wheels or 15" wheels, and torque thrust wheels were the wheel I was leaning towards.

aghaga,

The extra backspacing looks great filling out the wheel wells. Is the 4" backspacing in the rear too? My main qualm is the front not filling out.


NOT mine.

It is the width minus the backspacing that positions the wheel. My wheels are 8" wide with 4" backspacing. This gives you 4" to the inside and to the outside from the mounting face of the wheel and hub. To position a 7" wheel in the same outside location you would need a 3" backspacing. I have the same wheels all around.

Thanks. Your example is with a zero offset though, right?

This is not true.

The wheel width is the width to the inside of the bead width.

Wheels are always considered to be 1" wider 9" wider to the outside of the width dimension. This is the width adder that is always used in the industry regardless of the real wheel total width when calculating the wheel backspacing.

The backspacing is measured from the back of the outside width to the wheel mounting face.

So, a 8" wheel with a 4" backspacing is considered to be 9" wide to the outside. The 4" backspacing would mean there is 4" to the inside and 5" to the outside. This wheel would also be considered to have 1" of negative offset.

Your wheels are 8" with 4.5" of backspace if they are centered on the hub face. if would be unlikely to install 8" wheels with 1" of negative offset onto a 65 or 66 Impala and still have the tires clear the fender lips.

Mine are ZERO offset so that would make them 4-1/2" backspacing then. My visualization was the location of the centerline and width of the tire/wheel and its relationship to body/suspension parts.
