BUENA PARK, CA--(Marketwired - February 16, 2016) - Sixty years ago, American Racing came onto the hot rod scene and became an icon almost overnight. Today, Wheel Pros is proud to announce its newest iteration of the game changing Torq Thrust wheel, the TT60. Commemorating American Racing's 60th Anniversary, and available in mid-March 2016, the wheel is made from cast aluminum and available in satin black and PVD carbon finishes.
In the mid 1960s when the hot rod scene was becoming popular across small and large cities throughout America, the Torq Thrust made an impact on every enthusiast or teenager looking to customize their first car. It was unique, clean, and didn't look like the stock wheel that was sold off the line in Detroit. Since then, the Torq Thrust and all of its subsequent variations have become the standard in hot rod wheels. Each generation knows it can trust the Torq Thrust and this newest version is sure to thrill again.
"The TT60 is another example of how American Racing is tipping its hat to the tradition and impact of its original design, while embracing the progressive and innovative nature of our vision at American Racing," said Jody Groce, President at Wheel Pros. "We have committed 60 years to innovation and don't plan on stopping any time soon. This wheel will build a new generation of followers that we are excited to connect with and continue to impress."
From Steve McQueen's 1968 Ford Mustang in the film "Bullitt" to the countless muscle cars featured in the best car movies ever made, the Torq Thrust is a legend that continues to grow.
