    Had a buddy swing by with a set of cragars 15 x 9, 4.5 B'space for rears which is fine but his fronts are 15x8 but with a 2 3/4 B'space there mint but don't know if they'll fit my car (70 Roadrunner) is at body shop so I can't just throw them on .... Was wondering if they'll fit backspace seems too little have disc brakes up front any help is appreciated as he's looking to sell them and they are mint
    Thanks in advance , Pat IMG_20190224_165508.jpg IMG_20190224_165518.jpg

      I think most rims would need 4 inches to fit the front.
      I would hold off on them.

        That’s a very odd BS for an 8” rim

        Negative offsets were very popular on the rear of the car back in the 60's and 70's. You put that on the front the wheel will have a very large radii when turning. Could rub fender.
