They look like Torque Thrust 2's, just like what Stone said.....most definately NOT stang wheels and most definately NOT any Ford factory wheel.


Why are you looking for year when they are not any form of factory wheel? Straight up aftermarket American Racing Torque Thrust 2's.

Sorry guys.....Torque Thrust 2's have been out over 10 years now. You can get them with grey inserts, polished inserts. Check American's website that Trent linked.

Stang wheels are very positive offset, pictured are very negative offset. They are NOT the same wheel. And do not look like any factory stang wheel.

That is not the same wheel that has an even more worse offset its a FWD offset that needs a huge spacer in a ranger. and are you that blind you can not see the dish on the ranger wheel you ever seen mustang wheels up close in person there is hardly a dish those wheels you just posted have NONE..

Still isn't what's pictured....sure to the untrained eye...they look the same. But look at all the details of that rim you posted and all the ones I posted on the last page... bottom line: not the same wheel by a long shot.
