15x10 rear, 15x8 front. Don't have to be perfect condition, and not super picky about backspacing as I can work around that for now. I just want to ditch the black D window rims on my 83 and get something a little more sexy on there. I know I can buy new Cragars from Summit and Indy still makes brand new slots, but I'd much rather purchase from a fellow vanner if I can before I have to buy new from a corporate store.

I don't think you can put 15x10s on there. The brake drum hits the inside of the wheel.

15x10s on the rear are no problem. 4.5 or 4.75 back space.

I cant get 15x10s in the back, the outside of the drum hit the inside of the rim. That's with Cragars.

Never heard of that before. Are they 15"?
Here's a pic of 15 x 10s on the rear of our GMC.

I've since went back to 8" wide in order to run 10.50/31's

Lots of 71-95 Chevys running 15x10 rims out there, not sure what's causing your issue Bondo, but hopefully I don't run into it as well. I found a set of original Keystone Raider 5 stars very similar to the Cragar S/S in the scrap yard. They are on a 1st GEN Chevy, so I know the bolt pattern is different, but I'm going to scoop them up anyway. Might work for trades or something down the road.

My Crager SST’s hit the outer drum lips too, I had to put 1/2 spacers on the studs with long shank lugs. I have heard of this before.

I should be getting her towed to my shop early next week. I'll keep everyone posted when I try them. What backspacing are your SSTs? And are there any spaces you'd recommend if I do need to go that route?
