I'd like to run 15" X 8" Cragar S/S all-around but this size is only available in 4.25" BS.

I've read this may be a problem with front fender clearance. Will this BS work and what tire sizes would I be limited to in front? I'd like to run something like a 245/60-15 all around, if possible.

Edit: I've discovered that I can custom-order a 15" X 8" S/S wheel directly through Cragar with a 4.50" BS ("0" offset). Would that be the way to go?

That rim and tire wouldn't work on my car. It works on other cars though. The 0mm offset would be a safer bet if you can't try a borrowed wheel or measure it to know.

Thanks. I've decided to order a set of 15" X 8" wheels directly from Cragar, custom made with "0" offset. I'll see if I can scrounge up a couple of used 245/60-15 tires off CL or maybe from a local tire store, and check them for front clearance before committing to a new set. I'm not worried about clearance in the rear.

There's little concern on the front with 0 offset wheels.
