A little help for you

I want to run the Old SS style rims on my 63 also this is the personal response I recieved from Cragar even though I said 15x6 not 15x8 but there is the info hope this helps you.:turn:


On the 15x7 we can do up to 4.375, on the 15x8 we can do up to 5.375.
So yes we can do that backspacing in the 15x8.

Thanks,

so Bill what wheels did you go with,oilman
I have Boyd Coddington Fury's 17 x 7 w/4.5 bs all the way around 245/45 in the rear and 205/40 in the front.

You really need a 4.5 backspace in the rear on these first genners to fit at least a 225 tire, and 235 is a push on some cars.

The major problem is a lack of 15" wheel choice that has the proper backspace. There are alot of 16" and 17" wheels that are available with the proper backspace.
