Torque Thrust With Wide White Walls??

Has anyone ever seen Torque Thrust Wheels with wide white walls? I really want 18" chrome wheels, like torque thrust IIs. But I also like the smoothie wheels with wide white wall tires. So im just currious what it would look like if anyone has done torque thrust II or any 17-18" chrome wheels with white walls?
Pictures would be great if available!

What you're describing sounds more like what we used to call "Supremes" than TOrque Thrusts. I've seen pix of the on the board with wide whites but never saved them. Someone has them so you can compare the look of TT's vs. them.

A lot of guys run Supremes with wide whites but I don't think they would look proper on Torque Thrusts. You need the shiny chrome to go with the whitewalls.

Those are Tork Thrust "D"'s or 2's. Not a big fan of those! Need to stick with a "straight" spoke (early style Tork TTO, Astro Supremes) to get the right look! 'Course it could be just my taste...
