Last Call: TE37’s work on anything

Despite the fact that Volk Racing TE37s are so common these days, I never get tired of seeing them. It’s a great looking wheel that works on just about any car. @Freshhkiicks instantly comes to mind when I talk about the wheel because he puts them on just about every car he owns from the R8 he sold not long ago to his new C6 Z06 pictured below. I don’t think I’d ever seen them on a C6 before he did it and it honestly looks way better than I would have expected. Although I’m sure the stylish red and black throughout helps. Do you guys agree or do you think its overrated? I could easily see people getting tired of the look but not me.

    I was in California eating cheese and there was a Volvo.

    I stumbled across this 780 Bertone ‘diamond in the rough’ while out walking aimlessly around because that’s all there is to do.

      Where did you find the stash of shorty vans?

        Certain undisclosed blocks of San Francisco don’t have street cleaning. Just the other side of the blue van are a 1960s Land Rover and a Ponton Mercedes. I used to live on this block in the ’90s and left my F-250 there for months after I moved a few miles away. My pal Nik owns the Ponton and lives in Berkeley. IDK who owns the other classics; they kicked everyone I knew out of these warehouses after the Ghostship Fire.

      TE37s might not work on this one

        Darn wheel bolts

          That’s not the issue, I just don’t think they’d look good. The angular Volvo styling would clash.

        They’d be better than those steelies. Even a steelie lover like me thought those were out of place at first glance.

    My brain generally prefers an odd number of spokes on a wheel, but TE37s certainly look the business.

    That’s okay. I’m debating putting torque thrusts on my Kia Soul when the tires are due for replacement in about 10,000 miles. I have them on my Corvair and they work on everything.

      My neighbor just bought her college-sophomore daughter a Soul, and I was recommending the same thing. These are straight off of a Mustang, and look great IMO. They would stick out a bit more than stock, but despite being RWD, modern Mustangs use a pretty high offset. Classic Torq Thrusts would be too deep-dished to work.

        This is the picture that I was looking for. Thanks! Now to decide if I am willing to do this to my 2015. I am not against this. I kind of like how it looks.

          Like you, I think Torq Thrusts look good on just about anything. I’d go for it– especially considering those are plentiful in the market and therefore probably pretty affordable.

      I think Torque Thrusts work better. TE37s aren’t going to work on 50s and 60s American cars unless you go full pro touring restomod. Imagine the travesty of putting them on my dad’s Eldorado:

      Torque Thrusts will just work on 50s and 60s cars with no mods or many, as evidenced by the hundreds of them at every GoodGuys event. And my Thunderbird with its similar Boyd Junkyard Dogs.

    With wheels, like with a surprising number of other things, it seems like simplicity and functionality stand the test of time.
