cragar wheels

hi everyone,i have a 69 that has been lowered 2 inches with 245/40/17 with a 4 in backspace on the front and 315/37/17 with a 5 1/4 backspace on the rear with no clearance issues.I want to go back to the 15 in wheels, possibly cragar ss. with a more conventional tire size.I am new at this so any advice would really be appreciated. thank you, Bob

Re: cragar wheels

I have Cragar 15x7 with 4" backspace all the way around. Lowered front and back, with 235\60-15's and never have issues with rubbing even with heavy passengers in front.
I drive it like I stole it.
I'm wishing I had a wider tire in back, but that would probably mean a wider wheel as well.

Re: cragar wheels

These will center the wheel in the well:

15x7 w/4.25"bs
15x8 w/4.75"bs
15x9 w/5.25"bs
15x10 w/5.75"bs
etc.
