    Check out my build thread.
    I had Cragar soft 8's in 17x8 a while back. Not sure what size you are running, but they look identical to my setup as far as style.

    The punch out of the holes on the back of the wheels hit my brake calipers. Even with 1/4" spacers they rubbed. For me, they did not work without modification.

    I ground down both the punch outs on the holes, and my calipers just to make them work. Not worth it in my opinion.

    While the wheels are cheap, the time and effort I went through wasn't worth it to me. I still have them, but do not run them anymore, they are sitting in a shed.

    Here is a picture when I was running them.

    I would make sure this guy doesn't charge you for anything until they are test fit, and they work without any issues.

    They look the same to me, and I have seen this style labeled differently before, but it is possible they are different.

    You should know if they fit when you get them mounted with the lugnuts tightened down.

    Good luck!
