Yes. If you're not using 12" wide tires, they're fine. Good for 31x10.5's. Big ol' boggers might need a wider bead.

Thanks for the reply. Id be putting the general 235-75-15s on it so it should fit fine. Last question before I order them, they say 5x4.5 in the title but the description says the Bolt Pattern is: 5x114.3. Is that ok?

it's ok 5 x 4.5" is the same as 5 x 114.3 mm

Fwiw, jegs.com and summitracing.com have them also. Comparable prices and more width and offset options. Jegs even has a nifty model program to see desired wheel on your vehicle with your tire size and lift to an extent.

some metrics and standards work together

Awesome good info ltrail. Trying to decide if I want black on black or if I should find chrome/silver rims. Il just keep looking

ltrail 08-08-2012 10:16 PM

try the setup on jegs.com man. There are many other cragar wheels out there. One set it like a big star, they a 5 spoke steel wheel. 541 series or something. Its cool to be able to see the wheel/tire combination before purchase.

That program on jegs was awesome, I spent a good hour on there trying all the different rims. Im still liking the d window rims however may go with american racing over crager, these ones - http://www.ebay.com/itm/330772589148...ht_1643wt_1163
They are 15x7 5x4.5, 4in back spacing and 3.3in center bore diameter. Will I be able to run these with 235-75-15's no problem? Im talking about no rubbing? Thank you

You should be good with that size and spacing. That price is ugly though, free shipping or not those are pricy. Did you look at jegs prices lol? Or just get distracted by the car chart?

Basically the same rim is 40 bucks a piece at summit 191 shipped - 41 bucks a piece. You need not spend that much.

I'd also consider the 15x8 options. They will be fine with your 235's if you don't super air down, and if you ever go 12.5" wide you'll still be ok. Same price as well.

Haha you are correct I was distracted by the car chart. They have the rims I want for $55 a piece - http://www.jegs.com/i/Cragar/260/342...=751048#bottom They dont come with the center caps but thats ok. I know the price is high for the american racing rims on ebay but they have the offset I want. The cragers on ebay have a 6mm offset, where the pricey american racing have a 0mm offset (I want a wider stance). For $230 shipped I can get the crager d-windows with a 0mm offset - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Cragar-Black...ht_1588wt_1163

Thank you for the link. For now id be going with the 235-75-15s but when and if I can afford a lift kit, id be going up to 31x10.5x15s. Will those fit a 15x7 rim? Also wont rub as bad with 0mm offset compared to the 6mm offset.

Kids get distracted by anything shiny these days lol! enjoy!
