Summit Racing or Jegs. I would imagine they both do international sales.

Its a little difficult to fit these wheels ( 15'') on Fd , but you can . Its neccessary to use 0.50 spacers for rear and extended lugs from Weld . Also its necessary to modified the rear fenders !
In the future i will tell you more !
Many drag racers like a Ari Yallon , and Dan Shechter used these wheels, as i know !

Whay would you have to modify your rear fenders????

They should fit just fine as they are right, I believe Ari and Dan use stock fenders, please explain in detail because I really want to do this

your rear fenders might need to be rolled but that's no big deal........ I don't think any modification is needed if the right wheel is picked.

15x8 with a 5x4.1/2 bolt pattern and a 6.5" backspacing for the rear. You'll need to grind the calliper down a bit and grind the nut to the toe link also.

Thanks a bunch ErnieT, this information is very useful. I just have one more question. ( I am not sure what the 6.5" backspacing means?? Is that referring to the spacers needed to fit the wheels or is that seperate? )

Thanks

When you order weld wheels, you have to specify what back spacing you want. It's the way the wheels are made.

So no spacers are required right?

Anyways thanks I will definately order mine this week from Jegs, I believe they sell them the cheapest.

It would be awesome to see some pictures of the wheels installed.

I cant seem to find a 6.5" backspacing for a 15x8 inch wheels. They only seem to have a 6.5" backspacing for a 15x10" wheel, unless I have to special order them.
Does this mean I have to use 15x10" wheels for my FD?
