    Had them on the last '51 F1. I ordered them through summit racing and they were made to my specs right here in the good ol' USA.

    You can almost NEVER go wrong with a Cragar SS note the backs are 16" very hard to find & have a different look to them. If anyone has a set of 16" PM me if you want to sell them need a pair for one more Austin.

    Thanks Trouble

    Here are the wheels for my 57 Corvette Gasser:
    Rears, 16 X 8 with 5 X 5" Olds bolt pattern. These had Goodyear Blue Streak slicks on them. The wheels are dated 7 1968 and are very nice.
    Front, 4.5 X 15" 4 3/4" Chevy with 570 X 15 bias tires.

  6. Early 70's I worked in a sketchy (at the time) part of Detroit and drove a 66 Pontiac 2+2 with Cragar S/S wheels. Found out that the stock 66 Pontiac wheel covers would fit over them making it a little less of a steal me first car.

    Friday night drill, open trunk, remove tire iron, remove wheel covers.

    Sunday night drill, open trunk, remove wheel covers, install.

    Repeat as necessary.

    I'm looking to put some cragars on my 64 bel air and found a fairly cheap set (400$) of 15's. Now I'm going for that traditional lowrider look, do you think these would look too big? Should I wait and look for some 14's?

    I just found a set of old15x4 ( they may be 3.5 wide I will measure to make sure I think they are stamped for racing only on the back) SS big ford bolt pattern 5 on 5 1/2 With caps and lugs chrome in decent shape for a driver, typical pits in lug valley area, if anybody is interested hit me up. I will post up pics if anybody wants to see them.

    Pretty sure all the old ones did, I know mine do. I (and tons of other guys) run them on the street with no problems. Looking cool is much more important than safety anyway.

    Yeah, but they are mounted on my car and the dates are covered by the tires.

    Had a pristine set of 15X4s & 15X8s, sold to a buddy for his dune buggy many moons ago for $100. The fronts even came with a set of Moroso front runners. :(

    Can't post the ones I have cause they're now on my 70 Chevelle with Ansen Sprints in the back, but they're 4" width that came off my race cars in the late 60's and I've been running them on various cars since I got them in 67. Here's my buddy Paul's set on his Rusty Bucket tho! Grin...
