The pic is kind of small...but I dont believe they are. I havent seen a black AND chrome soft 8 before but that doesnt mean they dont exist. These are soft 8s on my jeep.

I'm going to have to say that yes, those are soft 8s. But my definition might be wrong...

VVCG33 03-09-2011 09:56 PM

I think they are. I know they are cragars... And the straight on picture makes it look like the center bowls out instead of in if you know what I mean...

Looks like the picture is of the back side of the wheel (running white letters in). If it is not Cragar Soft 8's then it is some other companies version of the same steel wheel.

Ok judging from that bigger picture I think they r also soft 8s or the like. The smaller pic was too hard for me to tell

Regardless of what they are, I'm still getting them...Does anyone know if these will stick out of the fenders? The guy doesn't know the back spacing but I have 265/75 on stock 15x6 wheels right now and they are just barely inside the fender...

I am guessing that they will probably stick out more than the wheels and tires you have now.

Hopefully, I really want a wider stance so the Jeep isn't so top heavy when driving on steep mountain roads

Most of the time the cragars have less backspace than stock wheels so they tend to stick out farther.

VVCG33 03-10-2011 06:34 PM

Awesome, I like how the tires sticking out gives it that "Real Jeepish" look

If they are the Cragar soft 8's the backspacing should be 4" (unless they were special order), stock is 3.5 or 3.75 (don't remember which right now), but they are most likely 8" wide, where the stock most likely was not. I think most stock wheels were 7" (may be wrong, if so feel free to correct me).
That is the wheel that I run (soft 8 15x8 w/4"bs) they were out past me flares by about 1" (but I am running 35/12.50/15 tires). I would rub on my control arms at full turn so I now have the 1.25 spacers and it is much, much better as I can full turn now.

I'm going to get them tomorrow, and then I have to work on getting all the chrome polish off to paint em black
