Soft 8 Question

I'm wanting to order a set of Soft 8's, but all I can find are ones with 4" BS. I really want 3.5 or 3.75 at the most. Is there a secret stash of these things out there that I'm not finding? Summit and Jegs have plenty of Soft 8's, but none with the BS I want. Same with all the other places I've looked. Any help will be appreciated. Does anyone run these wheels with 4" BS? How do they perform with a 33x12.5x15 wheel?

Pics would be nice too. We love pics...

I have 15x10's with 4" BS




Soft 8's are not manufactured by Cragar. They are manufactured by Pacer I think. Pacer sells them to several companies. Your local tire shop may have a better time getting them from a distributor than online.

Do you ever have any issues with rubbing on the inside of the tires at full lock? I'll start checking locally as well as online for the Pacer brand name.
And your Jeep has a great stance. I like it.

I catch the fender flair when it gets stuffed and the wheel turned to lock.

If I trimmed the flairs an inch I would be fine.

Alright. Thanks Nick, for your fast responses. I'm going to try to get these found/ordered soon. I hate my current wheels so much I'm going to rattlecan them black.

Those are 5x5 bolt pattern. I need a 5x4.5 bolt pattern for my YJ.

They have them too. I skipped over them because your profile pic is a TJ. I didnt see the soft 8, but they have a ton of wheels on the site.

TJs use the same bolt pattern as the YJs. (5x4.5)

I found these on Summit's website...

Looks like I need to make an order!

Check out Discount Tire. They can get you what you want and they match most pricing. I bought a set of Unique brand rims from them for $55.00 ea. They look just like Soft 8's. Same company makes both of these rims.

I'll buy from them if they can match the $45/wheel that Summit offers. Looks like I need to get in touch with Discount Tire...
