Default Day 2 wheel combos on a Chevelle?

Guys what are some Day 2 wheel combos on a 69 Chevelle? I was thinking torque thrusts, Daisy's? Cragers look sweet but want to do something different. I have found a few vintage sets. Plan on having slicks on her as well.

Don't forget steel wheels out back. Very common in the day (made the dollar stretch) and gives it a tuff look.

I seriously considered chrome steelies out back and torque thrusts in front. I think it's still in the front running but for now, Keystones all the way around.

Any day-2 wheel choices on a 1969 Chevelle ought to include Torque Thrusts...

My personal favourite day-2 wheels on a 1969 Chevelle are aluminum slots like these Ansen Sprints... 15x8 on the back and 15x7 on the front.

Then again, no Day-2 wheel conversation would be complete without including Cragars!

----I have a set of early Torque Thrusts 14x7 on 4-3/4. The best set I have had in a long time. Complete with new lugs and new correct hole center caps. The beads are polished and the center is painted with Corvette KO paint. Nearly perfect for $800.00 if you are interested. Will bring them to MCACN in Nov. otherwise or deliver them there. Can send pics!....Bill S
