I contacted a guy selling some "almost Weld draglite" looking wheels that he will custom backspace... the wheels look pretty good and they seem to have really good feedback... he'll do 15x7/15x8/15x10 in a custom backspacing...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/WELD-Style-Draglites-15x7-15x8-or-15x10-Ford-Chevy_W0QQitemZ270085663561QQihZ017QQcategoryZ4395 5QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

the guy replied to my question... and here is what he said...

"i could do 15x8 witha 6 inch back space. i could also insert the 5-4.5 bolt pattern to 5-4.25 for you. if a group of you bought them, i wouldn't charge extra for the bolt pattern, if it is four wheels at a time, i'll charge about 25 dollars for the extra machine time. let me know."

I know they aren't true Welds, but man they look extremely good for 299.00 a set of 4... plus a $25 extra for the machine time!!!

If there is a group buy, he'll wave the extra machine charge....

just thought i'd share the info.. when i have the money, i'll probably order a set of 15x7's f and 15x8's r, from him...

I've ordered some of the new Summit brand wheels for the race car. 15 x 8 with 5.5" BS. They are 4.5" bolt circle but this car has had the conversion. When they get here I'll be checking fitment and seeing about having the 4.25" bolt circle put in so they are dual bolt pattern. Cost $119 each, free shipping. :D

I wonder if that guy can offer a skinny for the front?

From the auction listing:

I do not offer any other rim sizes other than the three sizes listed above.

I guess you will be posting pictures once you get them. Are those the Weld wheels they have listed on their site? And do you plan on having any available in 16's as well??

Did you even read his post?!? He said they are Summit Brand wheels, so no, they are not Welds. And Dave doesn't own Summit Racing, so why would you ask him if he plans to have them available in 16's?

Call a local Machine shop and ask.
