Just made an order.

Woot. Finally got around to ordering some new wheels. I hate my stock ones.

Ordered the Cragar Soft 8's in 15x10 form with 4" BS. I'm not gonna post a picture of them, because you should already know what they look like.

For now, their just gonna be chillin' in the house till I get my tax return. Once that comes...Brian (BlkTremor02), you'll be expecting an email from me about a certain set of tires.

Well, as long as he's not running 33s he'll be alright...

A body lift so he can fit 15" wheels?

Don't see any tire size listed...

You getting the black ones or the chrome ones? Im guessing hes gonna get 33s with a 15x10 rim, thats kind of big for some stock tires....so he will probably need a BL

Yes yes, don't worry Zack. I'm getting a BL. Along with some 33x12.50 Buckshots.

Rocky: I got the black ones. I didn't really feel like keeping up on the maintanance of the chrome ones because of the rock salt here in PA. The salt would eat those alive.

I just got back from work and found out I got an email from summit. The wheels were sent in two different boxes. Each were 71 lbs. They should be here Monday.

My UPS guy has gotta love me. Between R/C Cars and trucks, computers, and now truck parts, he's getting a workout. LOL

You'll Probably have to remove your mud-flaps, so they dont rub.

Btw- the black wheels are probably going to rust. Chrome cleans up easily with steel wool, i wish my wheels were chrome instead of polished aluminum.

I dont know about other rockcrawlers, but the soft 8's are powdercoated and not painted so rusting shouldnt be a problem. Unless of course the powdercoating gets scratched off. Mine are supposed to get here tomorrow.

They finally got here yesterday while I was asleep. (I work 3rd shift, so I sleep during the day.) Opened up one of the boxes and oooooo these are NICE. A lot better looking in person then in pictures. I'm gonna test fit them later today and see how the black on white color combo is gonna look.

Well, since I don't have the tires and body lift yet, this will have to hold you over for now. LOL
