    The rim/wheel combo looks great! But the side exhaust just in front of the rear wheels really set it off.......me likey much!

    Any suggestions for the best prices on this Magnum 500/Radial T/A combo? Someone answered this for me a while back but I can't find it on the forum.

    I would like to put some old school Crager SS wheels on my 78 Dodge Aspen. Nothing sticking out of the fenderwells, just a slightly wider look than stock. My knowledge is weak on wheel sizes. I would like to buy used wheels on Bay or somewhere similar and I am at a loss as to what size to buy. I talked to my local Goodyear store and I was throwing out 14 x 7, 14 x 6 etc, and he was converting them to metric sizes and frankly, he lost me. Can anyone point me in the right direction here as to size? If I cold find some 20 year old wheels in good used condition I would buy them, even if I had to get 1 - 2 at a time. I just want to find the right ones.

    You'll have a problem finding many tires in 14". I'd suggest going to 15" rims. At any rate, you should be fine with a 7" wide rim. Just make sure it's a standard offset. They made (make?) reverse offset also, which means the wheel sticks out farther (the center is closer to the inside then standard offset). If possible, stay away from the uni-lug style wheels with the slotted lug holes. You need wheels with 5 X 4 1/2" bolt circle.

    I agree, go with 15 inch. IIRC, I have 7 inch wide on the back and 6 inch wide on the front. I think my backspace for the 7 inch was 4 1/4.
