Somewhat new Rims...

I bought these set of 5 cragar soft 8's off craigslist for $100. I couldn't pass it up. When I went to install them they wanted $65 the owner told me what I was going to do with the old rims and I told him I was going to put them on craigslist and he told me if I would give him my old rims he would swap my tires to the new rims and balance them for $20 I told him High Five! sound good to me.

Looks awsome. I assume you dont have any rubbing with that setup. Do you think you would rub with the next size large tires?

Those wheel are actually pretty cheap online. You can pick up a set of 4 pretty much anywhere for around $300 in a 17x8 5 on 5 bolt pattern.

Hey thanks guys I do plan on putting a bigger tire on when these run down. I am running my spidertrax 2" inch spacers with the 4.5" inch backspace and they stick out just the way I like them...

I really want some all-black steel wheels, but I was told they would not clear the front calipers without a spacer, even if the wheel has 4.5" of backspacing. I am looking at some Black Rock Series 942 wheels that are 17x8 with 4.5" BS. Quadratec states they will fit, but Black Rock says they will not. I wish I could test fit one before ordering them, but unfortunately I don't live by a dealer...

there's several members here running Cragar Soft 8s with 4.5" backspacing with no issues. they'll clear the calipers just fine, no need for a spacer. you'll have more problems from oversized tires than you will with the cragars. check out redbulljoker69s gallery. he has these same wheels and had some rubbing on the inner fender due to his larger tires, but the wheels fit fine. this is the wheel i'll be getting very soon myself.
