Straight bolt on black rims. "No mods"

THEY FIT! After reading just about every wheel forum on here saying i need spacers and caliper grinding, I took a chance and it paid off. The Cragar Black D 15x7" with 4.0" back spaceing bolted right up with room to spare. To be clear this is a 2013 5 lugger. I hope this helps anyone else looking for a cheap black bolt on wheel. Just did the BB mod and waiting for the fat bob lift to arrive and get the 31's on

Funny, I tried a 15x7 4" BS pro comp D window and it didn't even come close to clearing the brake caliper mounting bracket on my '05 5-lugger. I also tried some 15x8 4.5" BS procomps (after reading on a forum they fit) and a black rock and neither cleared the caliper mounting bracket, although they were much closer to fitting than the 15x7.

Ok guys ill post some pics on Monday when I get back. Im thinking maybe they have changed the calipers or brackets on these newer 5 luggers? I went to a wheel shop that let me test fit a no name white wagon wheel that was 15x7 - 3.75"b.s. It fit so that is why I decided to try the Cragar in 4.0b"s. More to follow
Dust, I see you are a '13 also. This I cannot explain. Perhaps the pics on Monday will

It's not just about the backspacing, but also the offset too.

Yes. And no rubbing against the caliper when the wheels balanced?

Gitsum, Thanks much for posting this info, with the pics!! These are the exact wheels I would love to have on my truck! Can you by any chance provide us with a part number? I would REALLY appreciate it! Thanks again!

Sure Tommy. The Jegs part # is 260-342-5712. I dont really like the red and blue pin stripes and now see that Jegs has their own "D window" wheel for the exact same price and no pin stripes if you want to try them. I wish I did. If you decide to try theirs I would order just one for mock up in case they dont fit. Return shipping on 1 is much better than 4. You cant beat it for $67! I have an appt for fri morning to mount the tires as long as I get the lift done. Ill post final pics then

Gitsum, LOOKS GREAT! In that pic, it looks like the tires stick out past the fenders a bit, any chance you would be willing to post up a pic that shows how they sit in relation to the fenders? I was thinking about these wheels with stock suspension and 235/75/15's but after seeing yours on 31's I'm a little worried it would look goofy on the 235's, I definitely don't want the "skateboard" look. Again, GREAT looking ride! are you going to have to re-gear?

Ill wait til tmrw daylight and will post a longways pic. I MAY regear down the road but dont have to. The extra pep would be nice though. Drove 100 miles on hwy today and there is a little space between 4th and 5th gear. Not bad but requires downshifting to pass or go up hill. (Or drive faster to increase rpm's) I may go to 33's next time and will def have to re-gear then.
