    Hi All

    I have done away with my slot mags because they didn't look aggressive enough, and I have just fitted Cragar V-5's - brilliant price from Summit as well.
    These are 10 x 15 rear with 295/50 x 15 and fronts are 8 x 15 with 195/50 x 15.
    I have Mopar Performance springs on the rear so the tyres don't come close to catching, even with a trunk full.
    Cheers
    Kev

      Are you using super stock springs? If so what shocks are you using?

        I think they are Super Stock springs, I have the Mopar Performance part number somewhere, I'll dig it out. I think they are KYB shocks I have on the back.

        Careful, I have noticed recently the KYB shocks are to long for some applications, notably on my ‘03 Dodge Dakota. Also they are street shocks that do not work great with S/S springs.

        Which the length doesn’t hurt with S/S springs.

        Use B body shocks. There longer.

        @KevC With 3.75 back spacing, The fronts look pushed out a bit. Also, what tires are those?
        PS, we could use a side shot of the wheels/car.

        That thing looks badass. :D
        What tires are you running on the rear? I don't recognize that tread pattern.

          Thanks! I've heard of these but I don't know anyone locally who is running them. How is the traction so far?

          Not to imply that these are necessarily and better but have you ever looked into Avon CR6ZZ? We can't get them too easily in North America but they're supposed to be pretty good 15" rubber.

          Then again, they may not offer the steamroller sizes like you're running. :D

          EDIT: The do offer 295/50/15!

            Traction seems good, really good to be honest.
