A friend gave me some M/T drag radials. They are 15 x 11" wide. He said the they will work on a 15" x 8" wide rim with a 4.5" backspace. Can anyone confirm this. Then I want to buy a inexpensive pair of wheels. I was thinking some steel wheels. Anybody know where a good place to get them and price?

I think they are 15x10.5 anyway...rallye wheels are what I have my ET Streets on and they fit fine. Most bone yards should have GM 5 lug 15" wheels.

Look into the CHEAP, roundy-round steel rims!!

I want to say "Bassett", "Diamond" and a couple more????

My memory is about as short AS my ----------------- He, He, my left index finger!!

I am, and I will need at least 16's if not 17's!!

Only problem there is that some (the Soft 8 is one example) are very heavy.

I would look into finding a pair of used aluminum 8" wheels. Not sure what kind of price difference you might be able to find, but the weight savings could be worth it.

Yep, the steel weight scared me off. I found a cheap set of light aluminums at Summit but they haven't shipped yet. Yes, they're cheap because they're homely,,,,, all right, ugly! Maybe I'll cancel.
