    Looking for Cragar rim's I find 15x8 with the rite bolt pattern but cant fine the 4.50 back set. Only thing is 4 and 1/4. so will these work on our car's and will it make the 8s rub the fender. Want to put these on the rear. Russ.

    15" X 8" w/ 4.25" backspacing works fine. My exact combination w/ 275 60's.

    Ok thank you Acme A12. It was driving me up the wall not being able to find the 4.5 back spacing. I did get another brand from Summit today that had the 4.5 back set. Just to get the car into a roller. Will drive it with them till I get my Cragar's. Russ.

    I ordered a set of rim's just to put it into a roller. From summit. Hope the D hole is the rite size. Wondering now about the center hole for the front. As long as I measure the out side of the bearing cap and get the mag center hole bigger I should be ok Rite. Russ.

    Indeed, the Cragars always made the car. Only thing I can think of Russ is offset of wheel as you’ve considered but have disc brakes been added or as I learned some cars came with them. If the discs and calipers are too large also wheel/rim may not clear. Big problem with the Brembos and Ford eliminated spare tire for slime and compressor instead. I did get a special spare though that clears ft. & rr. brakes, very expensive though. Would love to see some photos of your ideas and improvements. Reminds me of me back awhile ago.

    No disc brake's drum's all the way around. Found some band new with BF goorich tires. He bought them for a car and sold the car now has the hole set two 15X7 and two 15x8 checking to see if they will work. Has a good price on them. Say's they are for Plymouth roadrunner cuda and or charger. Russ.
