Cragar SS/T Wheels

Picked a set of these up off craigslist last year.
Finally got around to cleaning them up and to my surprise they
cleaned pretty good.
Dont have the $ for what I really want... so instead of using GM Ralley wheels the SS/T'S were put on the 66.

Tell me how you really feel about them!

I am going to try to do a poll.

Re: Cragar SS/T Wheels

Iíve never seen SS/Tís with slots, only the chrome solid face wheels. Thatís what I was expecting to see when I clicked on this thread. The regular SS/Tís look dated and can work on a car done in a 1970ís style, but only if speed equipment from that era is used. I think these rims are more flexible.

Re: Cragar SS/T Wheels

Those SST's are way cool, never seen or knew they were available with slots. I had a set in the late 70's wish I would have never sold them. Cragar should repop those a gain with regular bolt holes and not the uni-lug crap.

Re: Cragar SS/T Wheels

Had them on my Black 70 Monte Carlo. They did not have slots nor have I ever seen them with slots. I would not have bought them with slots.

THey look great in those pictures, how bad were they before you cleaned them? I say "run what ya brung" for a while, see how you like them after a while.

Re: Cragar SS/T Wheels

I dont like them . The slots appear thin . What I mean is usually a slotted wheel has a little thickness to it, a little beefier. Your car looks too nice for cheap looking wheels. Get the nicer ones you mentioned.

Re: Cragar SS/T Wheels

Those slots look either painted on or a sticker. I had a couple sets of those in the day and they were everywhere on the street.....not a one with slots.

Re: Cragar SS/T Wheels

Are there actual slots in the wheel or is that a decal?

Tighten it till it strips and back it off a quarter turn.

Re: Cragar SS/T Wheels

I'm not a fan of them with the slots. I think both the SS and solid SS/T still look as good on muscle cars today just as much as they did back in the day. I do like yours more than rally wheels though. I guess it 's just that I never saw them with the slots.

You forgot the Super Trick. Those are great looking, they are the predecessor to the Centerline Auto Drag, though there are subtle differences. Cragar really nailed the look with them but street car friendly sizes can be hard to find since most wound up on race cars.
