    bad price for a pair of 15" X 9" Torque Thrust style wheels especially if you're like me and like the spokes that are peaked rather than round. I'm wondering what he'd take for his best offer.

    I personally think it's not that great a price. I can buy those from Ron's Rims for $100 less with free shipping, and free lugnuts. And no old tires to dispose of. I'm also betting they're 8.5" and not 9". I don't think they ever made a 9" wide?

    I had

    no idea they could be purchased that cheap new and with lug nuts. I also questioned the 9" width because like you Vall I don't ever remember a wheel with a 9" width. I did contact the seller and asked about him removing the tires (who the hell sells wheels with junk tires on them) and he responded that he has no way to do it. I guess he must live somewhere that doesn't have any tire stores or service stations.

    I never noticed 10 years ago that thrust could have a straight spoke. I like my round ones but now that you guys pointed out the straight spoke I wish I had bought the straight one. Live and learn.

    Mario, I'm not sure the straight spokes were available 10 years ago? I think the straight spokes (TTO) are something reintroduced to fill demand for vintage look Torq Thrust wheels.

    They've been

    available for a long time. I had some back in the 60's. I rooted around on ebay and came up with these. Neither pair counter sunk for the newer style tapered lugs, nor the counter bore for the flat washer on the shank style lug but rather just a flat center hub surface. If I'm not mistaken the newer TTO wheels do take a shank style lug nut but they've also been counter bored for the washer. These both appear to be the older style rims.

    I like them also but bolt pattern is way too small.
