Will they fit?

Post by Scorps » Wed Apr 18, 2012 5:36 pm

I bought an old set of Crager SS's off my dad for next to nothing years ago. I was wonder if they will fit on a stock Malibu bolt pattern? There the 5 star design rim and have the U shaped lug holes, I hope they will fit I'm tired of the cheap ### ones that are on the car.

My frame is also notched to the seam so there is a little extra room if the back spacing is off, I need to dig these things out and paint them (there rusty).

Look like these.

It sounds like they fit Ford and GM.

I figured they would fit with the U shaped bolt holes.

Did you also get the oval lug nut washers with offset hole?

My '80 had a set of Keystones like this when I got it, the lugs were in the center of the hole.

My rims on my Elky have that same U shaped hole. They'll work just need the lugs fro them instead of the "accorn" lugs.
