Whats yer wheels?

Post #1 by f0ssil » Wed Jun 01, 2005 10:07 am

Hey!
I guess this is a bit lame :roll: , but i kinda wonder what kind of wheels you got, i'm having trouble finding some really nice 4-lug chrome ones to exchange my old ones (DSCF0047.JPG) with.

I really would want something like these Cragar's:

But it's hard finding 4-lug ones, so what you got (pics), or do you have nice links to sites selling FAT 4-lug ones ?

Here are some nice Cragars that you can get from summitracing.com

Image

They actually have 2 or 3 styles that you can get in the correct size for our mustangs, but these were my favorites. They are all around $45.00 a rim.

When i worked at Curtis Tire (custom wheel shop) i was told that cragars wont give a totally smooth ride as the lug holes are slightly oval for some reason. I never looked into it much but I figgure if thats what the wheel guys are saying...

anyone actually have Cragars on their car?

this is american racings wheel...the torque thrust...but at 250.00 per wheel :? i might actually consider the not so smooth ride.

Image

yea, plus the adaptors will give u a bit of a wider stance in the rear so it would also give a bit of a meaner look.

Well.... :( I haven't gotten around to putting the rims on yet. I'm waiting for my current tires to be totally destroyed before I go ahead and mount new ones on the rims and put them on. I'm trying to wear the old tires down fast, lots of burnouts :D

My mag wheels look the same but they are 14X6 and manufactured by Wolfrace possibly >20 yrs ago. I believe they where originally under 70's Datsun Z240.
I was also about to replace them but after polishing them with paste and rug wheel I decided to keep them!

Since I've been told that the 4 lug wheel pattern is the same as Datsun Z's, I looked for some of their parts. What do you guys think of this: Image.

Size 15X7, $549.95 for the kit (four wheels, lugs, stems, caps, Z emblems which could be swapped for Mustang emblems).

Sound like a decent price?

My current rims are 5 lug with oval holes in them. The reason it is used is so that you can use it on any of the 5 lug bolt patterned cars. They make a bunch of different lug nuts and offset washers to cover the holes. Just walk into a tire store tell them what size wheel studs you have (7/16 or 1/2 and thread count) and they can get you the nuts and washers you need.

t-west, those are sweet looking rims, mini-lites are where its at

Hmm. That is making me reconsider my original choice of the AR Ansens. These are cheaper too!

8)

Currently my 80 Mustang has a set of 14x7 centerline clones but as soon as I get the 8.8" disc brake rear rebuilt it will have these wheels.
Image

I have a set of wheels exactly like these except mine are 16x7's. I am even planning on running the exact same center caps.

My 81 Mustang has a set of 15x7 Cragar 5 spokes. They came with the car and I like teh black centers with chrome lug nuts on a dark car.

TWest,
I have been lookin into those wheels as well, but I will prolly go 5 lug soon so it would be a waste for me. I saw a 280z with them once and thought about askin the girl if I could pissibly try them on, lol, but I know she wouldnt go for it. ANyways, I say got for em, $500 for all that, shoot...that sounds good to me! Right now im rollin on painted black stock steelies...look hot if you asked me, wrapped in some big ole BFGs

I picked up my bullets as take offs (from the american racing wheels warehouse in STL) on ebay for $500 with decent tires (75%) I spent prob about a month looking for a decently priced set on ebay
