Vintage Cragar 15x8" wheels - GM Bolt Pattern


Looking for a vintage pair of 15x8 Cragar Mags or set of four Cragars with a five on 4.75" GM bolt pattern to put them on my 1969 Chevelle SS.  Do not want a unilug bolt pattern. 

A little bit of patina would be just great!  I am willing to pay shipping for a decent set.  Thanks!

You don't want new ones?
I've bought a set for both of my cars through Summit.
Some say the new ones are different but I'd have to see them side by side to compare.

Appreciate the suggestion, but I prefer a little bit of patina. I have a pair of vintage 15x4" fronts with patina that I'd like to run them with.

Do CenterLines interest you?

.....club member in Goderich has a set of really nice 15x8 CL w/small GM bolt pattern.

I can get pics if interested.

 ........I have always loved CenterLines and had them on a lot of cars for many years.

Can't contact my buddy (he may be away) but here is a pic of the wheels he has on a 65 Corvette.

These wheels are in very good condition - will send more pics when I contact him.

I did get your pm and I had a closer look at them. I'll give it more thought. Thanks for the suggestion!

My preference is still to find a pair of 15x8 Cragars with a GM bolt pattern for the rears, given that I already have a pair of fronts to match. I've found a few with a unilug pattern, but none with a GM only bolt pattern.

I have one and it's like brand new. I will send a pic, it's not the classic 5 spoke, the other flatter one...

butterNut SD rag,

I might have a set, they are sitting on my 1952 Chevy.
You can let me know how they will work for you.

I am in Innisfail, AB

 I may be mistaken but I dont think 14 & 15 Cragar SS wheels are produced predrilled for GM. The new ones come with an oval drilled pattern which replaces the old unilug setup with a rear insert. Predrilled are only offered in the 16+ rim sizes.

Cragar SS

Ya,  if you look at summit, they have what they refer to as  "direct drill" , but the wheels are more stylized.

The classic originals are only in a Unilug.

I am concidering getting a set of the vintage SS's in a 15 inch , summit is priced good at about 200 a wheel. 

If anyone near me knows of a nice used set of 15x6's i would be interested tho
