Cragar Soft 8's

Hey guys,

Lookin to get some of the black Cragar Soft 8's for my truck.... i am currently running 31x10.5x15 Firestone Destination AT's with approximately 75% tread life still remaining. I would like to put the Destinations on the Cragars, but i am really unsure on exactly which ones to order. I dont want a ton of offset, but maybe a little bit more than stock without having to run a spacer. Any help here guys?

Ben B.

check my build out to see i have the same style. mine are 13mm backspacing which is roughtly 4.125in BS youll need a small 1/4 spacer to run these rims cause the back side of the rim that mounts to the hub isnt as thick as an alloy rim or stock rim so without the small spacer youll grind up your caliper.

btw ive been running that spacer for 2 years with no problems. i recently got a set of spidertrax but i have no reason to put them on yet. i also have no rubbing issues at all and you dont really want to go any lower on the backspacing or go any higher than 5.5 back spacing.

Good deal, where would you recommend getting the spacer from?

you can get a universal spacer at most autoshops.. you dont want anything more than a 1/4" spacer or else you wont have enough threads on your lug nuts to do much good. my shop threw them on for free when they mounted my wheels

Thanks for the help, solid build thread....accidents are never fun thats for sure. How wide would you recommend that i go? i plan on sticking with the 31x10.5x15 size and the truck is almost always on the street.

would be willing to hook you up with the softies and spacers through our group buy going on through memorial day. the distributor is giving us things around dealer cost, so should save some dough...

15"x8" 6X5.5 -27mm 3.5" 108mm

Would that size work without any spacer?..... its an alloy rim.

you should probably be fine with any type of alloy rim, but i aint no wheel expert just relaying the route i had to go with mine.. regardless i love the simplicity of them and im not a big fan of those fancy alloy rims i think they look too ricey

also i would see about contacting an offroad shop in your area and check out the styles they offer and they can usually provide solid advice on what fits and what doesnt
