WTB - Set of 17 inch wheels for 65 fastback

Looking for a nice used set of Torque Thrust II  or Coys C5 or Rev or other similar five spoke grey or chrome wheels with or without tires.
Prefer 17x7 and 17x8 staggered set.
Have the MS Cobra brake setup and need 17s to clear calipers.
Have a wide ratio toploader for trade or will buy wheels outright.
DFW location or near driving distance from there.

I have some 2001 Bullitt wheels. cheap In Ovilla.  You would have to run spacers and they are 17x8, not really recommended for front, but if you need something temporary until you find a set, these are $150 a set.  If you want the set with no curb rash, $200 a set.  Same as on my fastback.  (but my fronts have been narrowed to 7")

Re: WTB - Set of 17 inch wheels for 65 fastback

Hey MS, thanks for the note. I'll keep that option in mind. I had some 8 inch rims on the front a while back and they looked great. If the car was parked there were no problems, but when in motion there were problems attempting to turn corners or navigate dips. I think the 7 inch rim in front is a much better fit for my car.

Nice wheels! Looks as good as new KMC and Moto metal wheels we installed on certain rigs at the shop.
