Well the shortlist is down to two, I have to decide in the next couple of days coz I want the new wheel & tyres fitted Wednesday.
I like both these styles but only one will win out, Should it be cragars or magnums with whitewalls or white lettering?

What kind of van? Can you post a picture? Whichever rim you pick, the tyres should definitely be white lettering, not whitewall.

That's a tough one. I like them both. But a deep dish Cragar SS is a prety awesome rim.

I like them both too. I'd hate to have to make that decision for myself. smile
Honestly, it's going to look great either way.

Can't go wrong, but I like the Magnums with white letters.

Thanks guys, I`m pretty much set on the Magnums with white lettering tyres.
I`m not a fan of staggered wheels - I always had 15x8" all round on my mind, but I`m thinking maybe
I should consider 7" on the front and 8" on the rear.. That way I`d have fat tyres on the front and fatter on the rear.
Whats your thoughts?
cheers

I'm not sure what I will do with that decision myself, when I add a second set of wheels to the mix in the future.

I have an '88 Trans Am right now, and between different offsets from and rear, and directional tread tires, there is NO rotating of the tires (short of dismounting and remounting). And they could stand to be rotated.

But I DO like the staggered look on vans. No doubt about it, they look good with some NASCAR rake, and feet tires under the rear.
