Default Bought some 15x4 Cragar SS wheels

Always wanted a set. Picked these up last week. Date code is mid 70s.

I'm going to work on them a bit and then assess the chrome. I'm already wondering if it's worth rechroming them lol.

I picked up a set a couple months back that the chrome around the lug nuts and in between the spokes was peeling. I knocked all the flake off taped them up primed and used chrome paint turned out pretty dam good! By the way the are on the front of my 69 chevelle with factory disk brakes.

Hope so, they definitely don't clear the 4-piston '67-68 calipers without a spacer, but seeing they clear Mike's '69 Chevelle discs, you might be OK!

Good to know chevyman. These came off a MI drag car that was never daily'd or saw winter but I think the chrome has flaked off the pads, guessing that's pretty typical.

In the past I had some stuff chromed by CMP in Villa Park IL too.
