Your gonna love the Torque Thrusters, Joanne.  I had the 8X17's on my 74 and thought they looked great.  Be sure to post some pictures.

You'll find a lot of custom wheels are made in China.  They just have American distributors.  Got to be careful on some brands as they're not made to DOT specs and are poor quality and not reliable.  I had American Racing wheels on mine for 8 years and they seemed to be fine.
