Cragar Soft 8

Will cragar soft 8 15x7 fit on my stock 2001 cherokee sport on the tires that are on the original wheels that are also 15x7 and will they fit even though they have a 4 inch backspacing?

Yes. As long as the Soft 8's have a 5x4.5 bolt pattern. The backspacing has nothing to do with the tire fitting on the rim. It deals with how far the tire/wheel stick out from the body

It won't look ridiculous with a 15x7 rim. I had them on my Cherokee with 235's and they looked fine.
15x7 on 4" Backspacing



You can see that the back didn't stick out at all

I have 4 inch backspacing as well rocking the 235's. I think it looks fine. I am not ready to get any sort of lift yet and did'nt want to put new tires on the stocker rims. I am not sure what it would look like if you have 225's which are about an inch smaller in diameter. The 235's tuck in nice.
