I have been looking for some Torque Thrust style wheels for my Silver beauty. Have found a company that makes the old style Torque Thrust mag wheel in our sizes, with the grayed spokes, polished outer rim, but only available as a 6 spoke for a 6 lug pattern...anyone out there run across a 5 spoke Torque Thrust style that will fit our 6 lugs? The 6 spoke just does not look "right" to me. I like the
retro look offd the 5 spoke and think would look nice on Silver SSR

I doubt that you will ever see 5-spoke Torque Thrust wheels for a six bolt pattern. Check out the bolt circle area - each bolt is between two spokes. Also, all of the six lug wheels I've found are on a 5 1/2 inch bolt circle - standard GM for years. The SSR uses 6 lugs on a 5" circle.

Why GM could not stay with a standard size is beyond me. The Colorado uses the 5 1/2" circle too, so it isn't just because the SSR / Envoy / Trailblazer are newer vehicles.

Who is your manufacturer for the wheels you found?

I would change over to 5 lug hubs like Ric418cars did. Gives you a lot more options as far as wheels go.

He is still on the site, just might take him a couple of days to get back to you. He keeps busy with all his other projects that are going on.

KMC wheels makes the SS 820 that is a five spoke that looks like the Torqs but comes in a 5 or 6 lug according to their site.
