That's basically a late 60's, early 70's Chevelle/Camaro wheel. It's a decent wheel, but be prepared to answer questions about why your Cougar has GM wheels on it.

They would look pretty good on a Camaro or Chevelle (except for the chrome)......

Ford had a similar wheel that was used on 70-71 Cyclones and Torinos and 71-72 Cougars, but they had a raised lip around the holes, and I think that surface was flatter than the GM wheels. (sorry, best example I could find is a picture of a model)

As mentioned, that looks like a "GM rally wheel" to me...Woodsnake says...."EW!" No way...

Even though they are similar to a GM , I think they are more toward a 5 slot aluminum wheel only in steel and reversed out .

Those are very popular and will have a lot of staying power without looking outdated in only a few years. I'm not saying that would be the case with your first choice though.

It's just that there are a lot of wheels out there that are the hip new trend and look aweful once the trend dies. The TTII won't have that problem. They can also be had in many different backspace configurations and are even available custom ordered.
