If i'm not mistaken, all the cragar street stars are 5 lug. They will fit if you swap over to a five lug. The only wheel manufacturer I know of that makes that "style" of wheel in 4 lug is bogart, and they are WAY more expensive! Cragar makes a street lite (i think its called?) that looks like the weld superlite that is available in 4 lug. Hope that helps, it's been a while since i sold wheels! :)

If it were me, I'd run the 15x8 with the 4 1/8 backspacing on the rear with a 255/60 or a 275/50 sized tire on the rear. For the front I'd go with either the 6 or 7 inch wide wheels, because the in the 8's they just don't offer enough backspacing. Nothing should stick out, especially with fox (or ranger) axles. Hope that helps?

15x10 as far as i know is too wide

15x9 will clear, seeing as guys here run 17x9's

A 15x10 wheel will fit on the back, but you need around 6 1/2" backspacing, and an 8" will fit up front, but for some reason Cragar only offers those wheels w/goofy backspacing...You can get weld wheels that will fit, but they are polished aluminum not chrome- and a little more expensive.
