Well, Dad and I just bought a car at the big show at Auburn, a 1952 Chevy Deluxe. No picutres yet, and it hasn't been delivered yet.

Right now, it has Crager Classic wheels on it with raised white letters. Unfortunately, since this is also Dad's, those will be the first to go. He wants simple black steelies, to go with a particular hubcap that he has in mind.

I've never bought wheels in my life, so I need help on this.

Here's what I have so far. I am shooting for stock dimensions on this.

5 lug
4.75" circle
15" diameter
6" width.

What about backspace? 3.5 inches?

What do I have wrong here?

52 was a great year for me.

"All 1995 to 1998 mid and full size RWD"

So you could get some stock 80's caprice rims from a junkyard and freshen them.
