If you’re a gear head who grew up in the ’60s and ’70s, then this wheel is immediately recognizable. The Cragar Super Sport, or simply “S/S,” was among the most popular wheel out there for hot rods, muscle cars and even trucks. Anybody who was anybody, either had a set on their vehicle or knew ten people who did.
Recreate the Classic Big ‘N Little Look with Cragar Super Sport Front Runner Wheels
Back in the 1960s all the hot Gasser and fueler straight axle drag cars ran Cragar Super Sport ‘bigs ‘n littles’. The look was picked up by the street machine crowd and made the Super Sports the king go-daddy wheel.
You can recreate that straight axle dragger look on your race car or street machine by pairing a set of 15 x 10, 15 x 12, or 15 x 14 Super Sports with Cragar’s Front Runner Wheels. The skinny 15 x 4.5 inch wheels are available in these bolt patterns and backspacings:
- 5 x 4.5, 2″ backspacing
- 5 x 4.5/4.75, 2″ backspacing
- 5 x 4.5/4.75/5 multi-bolt, 2.25″ backspacing
