    ....that is 8 lug bolt pattern. :eek1:

    Yep, I won one (1) brand spanking new Weld Racing Super Single II wheel on eBay and the size is 15x14 with a 6.5" backspacing.

    I'm wondering if this will fit the DRW D60. :thinking:

    Noticed the manufacture date on the wheel was made in 1995, so I'm emailing Weld Racing to see if its possible to get 3 more rims.

    Anyone think this will fit the DRW D60 front? I will get pics of the rim up this weekend sometime. :waytogo: :deal:

    I wonder what it will fit at all with that much backspacing. :eek1: That's really tucking the wheel inboard.

    It would be close. My stock H1 wheels with 7 inches of backspacing are close to the steering arm and outer knuckles. I can look this weekend to see exactly how close.

    Didn't the old Pontiacs come with 8 lug rims? Maybe it's meant to fit that? I can't imagine a 15" aluminum rim fitting a D60 unless you removed the calipers altogether...:dunno:

    well if they were built in '95 there super single I's not II's wich you wont find any I's except for old stock. Weld cut a lot of there wheels because they want to start building more 18's 20's and 22's word is there going to keep the SS II's and but build them in a 1pc. I ordered my wheels and it took over a month to get them(they had to make them) and I recevied ONE of them 3 days ago and they lost the other 3 so idk how long it will take to get them...... btw I got 15x14 SS II's 6x5.5

    ooh and if you post a fairly close up picture of the wheel I cant tell you forsure if its a SS 1 or SS 2

    also theres a company called real wheel that makes custom wheels anything form I think 6" up to 20" wide any 15's and up what ever bolt pattern you want. They do cost a little more then weld though, my freind is actually running a set of 15x16 8x6.5 there sick on 35x16 boggers and another guy in town either has the same wheel 18 or 20" wide

    Oh, I know what the SS 2's look like. I've got 2 sets of them, one set is 16.5 x 9.75 on my '85 K30 and the other set is just bare rims, sized 16.5 x 12's and both sets are SS 2's.

    This rim I got off eBay is an SS 2, not SS 1.
