Crager S/S

Has anybody put Crager S/S rims on 2nd generation Camaro? I would like to know what backspace will work best with 15/8" and 275/15 tires. Thanks for any info

Re: Crager S/S

no help on the second gen sizing, but you might think about your rim sizes.
The 15" Cragars, even new ones, are the old unilug one size fits all type.
The modern 16" & 17" versions are specific drilled for one bolt pattern, and use a conicle seat lug nut, this is a much better design. You'll also find a lot more tire choices with a larger rim, 15's are getting tough to find these days.

Re: Crager S/S

15s aren't hard to find (well, you might have to order them). They just haven't changed in 10+ years, making them old tire tech.

Has anyone put cragars on a 2nd gen? Do birds fly

Scott from NJ. Stay thirsty, my friends
