Kinda reminds me of the 60's and 70's high quality craiger rims. Really retro looking, makes me want to go to amsterdam and buy a pound or so.
I couldn't sport em.
Sorry,

I just love those, and I agree, they do look like
Cragar Classics. It was tough for me to make up my
mind which I liked more, AR Thrusters, or the boyd
Smoothies. Thrusters do come in a 6-bolt pattern
and they look EXCELLENT on a black dak (I try out
everything in photoshop before I do it to my
truck) but I just liked the boyds a little bit
more. :)

I bet they look great! Canadian Tire sells them up here in Canada, but they want over $550 per rim.

$550 each ? Ouch! These were a Ebay find; 4
Michelin Pilot LTX mounted on the Thrusters
with lugs/locks only used for three months
and they were $950 shipped to my door. Ain't
Ebay great!

I looooove ebay. I bid on a brand new, still-in-the-box set of Infinity speakers. No one else bid, so I got them for $10.50. :)
I bought my Boyds through Warren Aldous (Waldous@houston.rr.com). He gave me a great deal - they worked out to slightly less, even with shipping, than if I had bought the Thrusters locally.

Love the look of the Smoothie/Thruster. I also have the 17" Thrusters with the Michilen LTX's on my Silver CC. Love the setup. Got everything at the local NTB.

I think I'm going to get the 18's I pictured above...I can't wait to see all the Bullitt and select GT Mustang guys around town when they see my truck sporting their rims with one more spoke...

I bet if you talk really nice to Leslie, she would create an image of your truck with those rims on it for you to see. I'd like to see them on a white CC myself :)

Cheers!

I agree, those rims are sweet, and would look awesome on a white cc. Or better yet my Graphite CC!

I'm seriously considering those rims after seeing how good they look. Anyone have some info on pricing, or best place to get'm?
