    I'm dealing with the same thing in Canada. The best common rim I can find is a US Wheel white spoke 8 lug with 3.75" of backspacing. Cragar has the same rim. Pretty much any tire dealer here has access to them. I figure it would be the same in Sweden. They are around $65 Canadian. Google Summit Racing and the part numbers are there. By the way I got tickets to the World Junior's final Game this year. Canada Sweden Final??? :D

    I got mine from Summit racing. Like $40 a pop. Tho they had around 4.5" backspacing. I had to do some grinding to get them to fit in front. Im no expert on this but I thought you needed around 2.5" backspacing to fit without grinding.

    I got the same ones and they came in at 4.25" backspacing. I will be grinding the calipers this weekend and will let everyone know how it goes. It was about $160 to my door for 5 from Summit.
