Is it possible to use wheels like this on a travel trailer? The iconic Cragar S/S mag wheel look is such a timeless design, I can visualize it bringing my TT to life! When I was a kid, this was THEE WHEEL on any hot rod you ever saw. Friday nights we would head to Fountain Ave along the swamps of Starrett City in Brooklyn, and watch all the street racers tear it up. Eventually the police would turn on the fire hydrants and flood the avenue so the kids couldn’t race any more. That was back in the early seventies….

I would think it is possible as long as you can find the right bolt spacing, pattern, offset and weight rating. Would look cool!

Yes you can per etrailer.com https://www.etrailer.com/question-193574.html

Question:
Dear Sir, Is there any different between the rims used for travel trailer and the regular passenger car !! Or they are the same !! Is it safe to use a car rims on a travel trailer !! Many thanks in advance.
Expert Reply:
Trailer wheel/rims like # LHSJ301B are different than passenger rims and are tested for different purposes. Trailer wheel manufacturers are more concerned with vertical load limit and offset over everything else. I don't recommend using trailer wheels for vehicles as that is not safe, however you can use vehicle rims on a trailer if they fit properly.

The issue you may run into is that vehicle wheel/rims normally have a wide range of offset depending on the wheel style, where most trailer wheels have a zero offset. If your vehicle wheel/rims fit your trailer hub bolt pattern and have clearance from the frame, body, or fender of your trailer, you can use passenger wheel/rims........

Thank you very much, Jagiven! I had no idea this was an option.

I saved for literally MONTHS to buy my first set of Cragars when I was a kid.

My dad and I bought a wrecked 1967 Firebird from a junkyard when I was 14. I paid him something every week towards that car and saved up for parts to rebuild it. It took us a little over 2 years to get it done and I drove it for the fist time on my 16th birthday. That car meant so much to me not only because I paid for it (I'm not sure if I ever fully paid my dad - I have no idea what he paid for it) but because we built it together. Cragars went on the car as soon as I saved enough on my own.

Sorry for the thread hijack - Just brought back some awesome childhood memories of me and my dad!

Is This Possible?

Crager 61c series is rated at 1580# max load
Crager 610c series is rated at 1900# max load

Great idea, but I need a minimum of 2500# or greater for my 29’ rig. Be careful which ones you choose.

As far as your rig goes, i bet it came with factory mags as stock. My little mini needs to be dressed for success! bahaha!

Now those would look great on your rig! A real classic, I also remember them from my teens in the 60's. They look as great today as they did then. Please post some pics when you have them.

Yes, that’s right come to think of it. I’ve seen race car and race boat trailers with Cragar, American Racing and Keystone mags on their rigs in the past. No reason, but to find the right weight needs for your trailer for them to perform correctly, I would tend to believe.

Let’s see if I owe Uncle Sam, or he owes me this year! They sure would make a statement on my little rig, that’s for sure.

I had an absolutely gross mustard yellow ‘’73 with a cloth pull back sun roof, and a crazy powerful straight six that with the smallest bit of dampness you could spin the rear tires a half city block. Life was so simple back then.

And it will add 50 horse power, besides looking great

Thanks for the trip down Memory Lane!

If the bolt pattern fits, you can use the Cragar.
