I don't know but watching with interest... in case I jump off in this direction myself. Please send me, or post a pic if/when you do with the sizes.

I wish I could afford to buy new calipers and Cragar mags. For me there's no better look.

I like the sound of this, and I'm sure I would like the look too, a few questions for ya.

What year is the car, is it a vert, or coup?
What is the offset/back space of the rims?
Are they direct drilled, or do they have washers?
Did you have to use spacers?

Thanks

PS, for the record, they are CRAGARS. Not Crager, Craigers or anything else.

I ordered my tires and rims yesterday from Discount Tire, They gave me a 10% military discount, and another 10% off for their Memorial Day sale, and we'll get 3% cash back on our credit card. Mounted, balanced, and out the door for a grand total of $1,378.50, which also includes life of tire maintenance. Pretty good deal I thought

Front= P235 /70 R15 BFG Radial T/A on 15x8 Cragar direct drilled rims

Rear= P255 /70 R15 BFG Radial T/A on 15x8 Cragar direct drilled rims
