Well the dude on craigslist wont budge from his 200$ - (5) 16"x8" bs 4.25 cragar 8's
Think thats a fair price or can i find them cheaper?
Summit racing has 15x8s for $44 each brand new and only $11 to ship them. I am sure they have 16x8s for just a little more each and you would have brand new rather than used.

Steele wheels don't go bad. If they are in good shape and 20 bucks ea. that sound like a good deal. Dont know if the 1/4 in extra in B/S will make any difference. I hear 4" or less normally. Especially if you can pick them up and not pay shipping. I bought my 2nd set off Craigslist for 100.

Summit's own brand of Cragar soft 8 copies (with I think look really nice) are $44 each for 15x8 with a 3.75" BS. I would have gotten them if they had 15x10s in their brand for around $50.

Teaser pic. 31x10.5 Goodyear Wrangler Authority on 15x10 4" backspace Bart racing D window wheels.



I measured them mounted and the tread is right at 9.0" wide and the section width is just under 12" on the 10" wide wheels. The wheels measure 10" from bead to bead and 11" from rim edge to rim edge and the tires are wider than the rim edge by almost half an inch (~3/8") on each side. IMHO they do not look over stretched nor is there much likely hood I will damage the rim.

You are in Florida, your rims are probably pretty safe. Come to Kentucky and play in the rocks, every wheel you have will soon be BFH modified (LOL). How much do you have to air down to play in the sand?

With how flexible those 2 ply sidewalls are 20 psi will give me plenty of flotation.

Put in new driveshaft u joints. of coarse they Were rusted in place so it took way too long to do. However the annoying squeak is gone so it was worth it.

Put all new pads and rotors on so I can stop again. I bought the stillen rotors from kolak and some ebc green stuff pads. So far I love it already. The rotors are amazing and I would reccomend them to anyone. They are pretty spendy but extremely good quality!
