    Thanks, Larry70GS...the only issue that I am finding is that the wheels I want, Cragar 61 SS, only has backspacing up to 4 1/4....I don't know if that will work

    It will in a 7" wide rim. With an 8" rim, it will be really close on the outside. I have 8" rims, P275/60R-15 with 4 1/2" BS, and it is really close in the back on one side. It isn't unusual to have more room on one side than the other. The body may not be exactly square on the frame.

    Well, I just ordered the same size tires on an 8 inch with 4 1/4 inch backspace and -6mm...I hope we're ok with this or may have to make some adjustments...

    Phil,
    What brand rims and bs are you running 325/50R15's on/ I know they are 15 x 10's but not seeing much with bs larger than 5" and it seems 5 5/8 or 5 3/4 would be needed. Does anyone know if Buick ralley's are made by anyone with 5 5/8 or 5 3/4 bs?

    Gallagher,
    Yes, if it's not too much trouble to weigh, that would be great. I really would like to keep the original look but I've had people mention that they would be really heavy and should consider aluminum so I'm curious what the weight difference would be. If it's remotely close, I would definitely stay with the original look. Thanks.

    The 15x10 weighs 27 lbs.
    I don't have a 15x7 or 8 without a tire on it. Maybe someone else can weigh one of those.

    Thanks Mike. Not as heavy as I thought . No worries on the x7,x8. What BS are the 15 x 10?

    McWheels can put the backspace where you want it. I had mine set to 5.5" as per Hugger's recommendation.
