I paid big dough for a nice set of 15"x4" direct bolt rims from another member here last fall and matched those with a set of NOS 8" rears. Now I found another set of wheels and tires I am going to use on my car so may sell these ones complete with rubber on them if I can find somebody that wants a full mounted set with Pro Tracs. Big bucks invested in these but definitely one of the nicer sets around.

Finding a nice set of Cragar ss direct bolt round spoke wheels has been one of the hardest parts to locate for my build.
If it was not such a critical part of my build I would have opted for another wheel style.
I have even contacted Cragar directly to ask if they would consider making the original round spoke rim.
The rep was very supportive of the idea and had asked for the changes in the past when tooling required repair.
For some reason they would not make the change.
How many would pay a premium for new original style Cragar ss wheels?

Why buy new ones when good originals are available. If you need a set Bernhard, mine will fit your Olds and they're only a quick ship away from Alberta.

I can vouch for the Fronts that Graeme has, probably the nicest set I’ve seen other than the NOS set I have. No disappointments on those he has for sale. ����

Can someone please post some pictures of the originals, current and any other variations of these wheels so that I can see what the difference is?

I have two sets of 15 x 4 direct bolt Cragar SS wheels.
One set is driver quality the other set needs to be re Chromed
I’m leaning toward 69 date coded wheels that I will have re-chromed.

https://claremont-ca.showmethead.com...lery/18923233/

Here is a early set of Cragar SS 15 X 4 rims

This is how I would describe the rim in the link
Direct bolt
Round spoke
Round spoke with narrow outer rim
No bead lock



Differences to look for:
Center section differences
Round spoke with a wide outer rim
Round spoke with a narrow outer rim

Direct bolt
uni-lug

Bead locks
No bead locks

Todays wheels have :

Uni-lug
or
Direct bolt acorn nut

Flat spoke center
Flat spoke center narrow outer rim

I think there might be differences in the rim itself

I would recommend doing a thread search on the forum, there has been some very good and detailed threads on this topic.
