      I know you're looking for cragars, but here's mine with 17x9.5" 2002 Camaro SS wheels, 255/40/17. If you click on the date after the picture you can go to my flickr account and see other angles if interested.

      *EDIT* One thing I ran into, if you're running high gears in the rear (3.73+) and short tires, mine are 25" in diameter, you will have to factor in the critical speed of your driveshaft. I looped one by not having the correct setup for my car. Our driveshafts are LOOOOOOONNNGGGG and are much more susceptible to self resonance and twisting up like a pretzel.

      Just a note on the Cragar SS wheels. I bought a set from Summit maybe 6-7 years ago. I always have the local tire shop spin the wheels on their balancer to make sure they are straight before mounting tires. All four were not straight. Summit took them back no problem. I had the impression that wasn't first time for Summit.

      Thank you...... Not sure who I am going to go with, but I will be getting the Aluminum ones, hopefully they will not have issues....

      and I know some will be disappointed..... but I am still leaning toward 15" ..... I still cannot warm up to larger wheels on these cars.....
