Keystone Classic Wheels....

I found some Keystone Classic wheels here locally for a pretty good price with BFG tires. They are 15X8s with 4" backspacing. I am keeping my stock front and rear axles on my '53 and for the price I can't really pass these by. But my question is will the center bore on these wheels be big enough to clear the center hubs on the front and rear of my stock components? I am not so much worried about the rear as I am the giant front hub. Does anyone have a stock setup with these wheels already? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

I've always liked those wheels. If they are a direct bolt 5 on 5 1/2 they should fit.

They are a correct 5X5 1/2 bolt pattern, I guess the front hub just looks a lot bulkier than it is.

I don't think I've ever seen those wheels in a 5 on 5 1/2. I would think they'd be fairly rare.

I'd measure the front hub real carefully before committing, it IS bulky.
