Default Cragars (byersmtrco)

Hey I'm good for a old man, LOL! How are you doing? I was skeptical at first of whether or not to buy them and put them on "Christine" I had been talking to the guy on ebay that had them for sale. He made me one hell of a deal for rims and tires, $450.00 and he put them on a pallet to help me on shipping. I had to make sure with him hole spacing was correct. He checked and told me they would work and I bought them. The rims are in great shape and the tire had about 2/3 tread left on them! They are 15" I put them on and "love" the look. No where near stock, but she is my car and I wanted to give her my personal touch in look! I have had several say they love the wheels on her and a few says it does not give the car justice. Oh well, LOL! Going to try and send a close up of them I just took for ya. Let me know what you decide and if there is anything else I can help you with.
Thanks!
Richard D. Hord

P.S. Sorry I could not figure out how to send pic on PM!

I felt the same when putting the Minilite style wheels on my '66 but hey, it's MY car.!
Any chance of a full length shot of your 'bird with the new wheels on?

The Cragars with BF, TA's look great. Plenty retro. How big are the tires? Any clearance problems? What's really nice is you don't need tubes in the rims like using the spoke rims.
