Deep dish Crager wheels on a C3?

I'm leaning towards the Crager deep dish wheels on my C3. Since it's custom anyways, I thought that might be a good route to go.



This is the car they will be going on


What do you guys think? If not those, then what? Post pics of your C3 wheels if you want....

The Crager style will look great on your car, just remember that your tire options will be severly limited if you go with a 15" rim. Your LS engine will shred most all 15" tires.

I'd consider a set of 17" or 18" Cragers, or what ever style you choose.

18x8 front
18x10 rear

Thank you

That's where I start to get really confused is the wheel set-up...so many different sizes ect. I want it to look classy but fast and not to ghetto.

I've always loved the old style Cragar SS deep dish wheels.
I used to have a set on my '68 Charger.

I think the curves of the spokes go really well with the lines of the C3's.

Personally not a huge fan, but here are a few pics I found.





Many people have them, but for an old school five spoke I like the Torq Thrusts.

I think a lot of people are running the Torque Thrust rims. They look very similar to the 5 spoke you posted.

I'm pretty sure they bolt right on with no problems, and come in more sizes than 15". Choice is black spoke or chrome if I remember correctly.

Do a search, there should be lots of info on the TT's.

Yeah they look very similar to the Cragers. I will research them further. I definetly think I need chrome on the rims to really set it off.

Couldn't help but post this one, it looks great. Besides it's more similar to yours RED (although a '73).
