    I just picked up a 64 rivi and found some 15x7 reversed astros on facebook and wondering if they will fit on the back? thanks!

    They won't clear the big drums I'm afraid... But I've never tried it... I do know regular old Astros are a damn close fit.

    You are a wuss if you don't buy them. Doesn't matter if they fit or not.

    Ha yeah it seems like the will fit when I measure it. But most the pics I’ve seen they are standard ones... I don’t even really care for Astro’s too much but the reversed ones are kind of tough!

    Maybe the guy will let me borrow one!

    Update.... they don’t fit. The guy let me try one. Plus the axle center is larger than the hole of the wheel so you need to space them out a bit. So there you have it!

    I guess you could radius the wheelwells all around and run 15x10's like George Barris did on the Villa Riviera. chrome steel slots are the bomb......
