Crager wheels

Postby trxmstr » Wed Aug 20, 2014 8:50 pm

Ok so ive been looking everywhere and I'm trying to find some crager wheels. i want 15 x 10 w/ 6.5 backspacing. bolt pattern doesnt matter as I'm having the rear axles re drilled. thanks


this is the style I'm looking for

The soft 8's only come with 4" of backspacing. Do you think that would look a little funny?

Yes, it would. I know a lot of folks seem to like that style wheel, but I don't get the appeal myself. :? 8)

If the center bore on a rim is 3.3 inches will it fit in an 8.8 with 2.77 inch center bore?
