You can do a 15x8" rim. I cant remeber the backspacing off hand its either 4.5 or 5. Do a search and you could find alot of info, I'm sure the setup has been done many times before.

I have the summit stars. They look just like the jegs and welds. I'm pretty sure if you went with a 15x8 with 4.5 backspacing you will be fine.

Re: jegs brand knock off prostar wheel fitment

I sold that ram air hood thats on it in the pic. I just bought a 4" steel cowl from AMD. It changed the whole look of the car and has the pro street look just like I have been wanting.

Re: jegs brand knock off prostar wheel fitment

Thats exactly why I sold my ram air hood. I converted it to a lift off when then inserts popped out. Always need two people to take it off and its was a total pita.
