Anybody have some 15 x 8 or 15 x9 wheels in a 5 x 4.5 bolt pattern?

 

I need some fairly wide wheels and don't want to drop to much coin on them.  He'll, I'd be happier borrowing them for 1 event.

 

If anybody finds some for cheap and new, I'd appreciate it if nobody has any used ones.

 

Going on my 1989 rx7 champcar for the championship.  

 

I'd prefer like a 4 inch backspace or 4.5 inch backspace.

15x8 aluminum on 5x4.5 was common on Jeep TJ, the Sahara and some other option packages had them.

I run these from Jegs on our ChampCar. They've got 8" and 10", but no 9's.

That's what we run too!  I have 2 sets in 15 x 10.  They work great!

 

Just need to come in 15 x9!

 

Or, the jeep wheels need to have about 4 inch backspace.

 

Gah.

I have 4 of these Speedway Motors  wheels I'm not using. 15 x 8 x 4 off. But shipping from Arkansas would probably be  crazy. When do You need them? My step daughter just had a baby in NY. And I will most likely be making the trip East. Maybe GRM Express  somewhere along the way.

Thanks for the offer.  I have ru. Steel wheels in endurance racing and made them egg shaped pretty quickly.  

 

I do appreciate the thought and offer.

 

I realize I am being picky.  Thanks for all of your patience yall!
