This set of Cragars has been sitting in the garage for nearly three years. Since I've done about all I can do until I get some more parts, I decided to go ahead and let her wear her new shoes.

Thanks guys. I always wanted those Cragar SS's on my first '55, but as a teenager, I was lucky to afford gas. So I ran an old set of American 5-spokes that someone gave me when they upgraded.

What size are the rims and tires? Looks great!

Thanks!

The fronts are 15 x 6's (can't remember the exact tire size) and the rears are 15 x 8's. I had a bit of trouble fitting the rears under the fender-wells. I jacked the car up high enough to get clearance, but I actually had to put a bottle jack between the frame and the axle to fit them in. I'm not looking forward to my first flat.

I bought them off of ebay several years ago (back when I believed my painter) and they were supposedly made to fit a '55-'57. I think they cheked the offset clearance, but did not take getting the tire over the drum into consideration. Other than that I love them. All four, wheels and tires, mounted and balanced, delivered from CA to my door in TX for $1300 (shipping included).

I believe this is the outfit:
