Torq-Thrust Ds or Originals?

We've Had 3 Snowfalls All Winter So I'm Skipping A Month or 2 And Throwing Some New Wheels On Early. I Like The Look Of The Original Wheels But They Are Definitely Starting To Bore Me. I Have New Radial T/As Waiting For Rims And
I've Narrowed It Down To 2 Sets.

American Racing TTDs or TTOs, I Love The Torq-Thrust Look And The Wheels Origins Are Interesting. I've Googled Hundreds Of Pics But Really Can't Find Any Huge Differences Between The TTDs And TTOs.

TTDs: American Racing 1055761 - American Racing Torq-Thrust D Gray Wheels - Overview - SummitRacing.com

TTOs: American Racing 3095761 - American Racing Torq-Thrust Original Gray Painted Wheels - Overview - SummitRacing.com

I Want To Run 15x7s In Front For Sure, But The Rim Dimensions Are Tricky For The Rear. The TTOs Have 15x8.5s, But The TTDs Have 15x8s Or 15x10s.
I Want That "Deep Dish" Bad*** Look, But 10s Might Be Overkill. I'm Considering Ordering One Of Each And Just Seeing Which One Looks Better And Just Return The Loser(s).

Just a word of advice, I have polished torque thrust II's on my truck, they look great but the polished aluminum has started pitting pretty bad due to all the corrosive elements (de-icer, brake dust, etc) that they're exposed to.

So in your case, I like the look of the "originals" but they have a machined lip so you'll have to keep up on cleaning them. Just a friendly heads up. Either set will look great though, you can't go wrong.

RS Package, White Ralley Stripes, Premium Sound.
Mods; Flowmaster Exhaust, Vararam CAI, Pfadt Sport Suspension, Budnik "Ice" Wheels, Nitto Invo tires
Upcoming Mods; Custom grill and badging.

I'd keep the original wheels on, personally.

Or get some Cragars if you want that 'classic custom' look.

Torq-thrusts remind me too much of mustang wheels.
