    Default Keystone Klassics

    Ive seen where several people have discussed running Keystone Klassics on their Skylark/GS but when I look at the Cragar site I dont see where they make this wheel with the correct backspacing. Am I missing something?

    If I cant find any ralley wheels I had thought about going the Keystone route.

    Not too sure on the new ones. I just decided to run the "old" style ones from the 60's- early 70's. What backspacing were you running, and how wide are you going with the rims?

    The old and new Keystone design is similar but not the same.

    I was hoping to run 15 x 8 with 4.5 BS and 15 x 7 with 4.25 BS. It looks like the wheels they make with a 4.75 bolt spacing have backspacing in the 3.75 to 3.875 range.

    Yes, yes, yes. Where would you like me to start? Spokes, caps, bolt circles, etc?

    Let's see. You were born in 1985 and I was running Keystones in a 63 Vette in 1968. Where would you like me to start?

    Young does not equal dumb; although, I do have my moments.

    Someone could school me on the offset numbers though. How do those work? Why would they list a backspace number and offset number?

    Would a 275/60/15 on a 15x8 with 3.875 backspacing fit without issue?
