Re: Nightmare! Wheel Vintiques brand Rally Wheel -
CJ,..you are right on the money!
You may can get away with wheels that aren't "hub-centric" on the rears, but there's no way I'd run them on the fronts. The original Kelsey-Hayes rally wheels are still being made for about the same price as the repo,..the only disadvantage, is, for the KH 15" wheels, they're only made in 7" rims with 4.25" backspace, or the 8" widths with 4" backspace,..the latter being for Vettes. In the 8 inch version, there's not enough backspace for Camaros,..or more accuretely, they stick out too much which causes clearance issues.
But as CJ says above, you're asking too much of your lug studs to both center the wheel and carry the load,..that's the hub's job.
