Cragar SS wheels, lugs and nuts

I have a set or old crager ss wheels with this kind of lugs and nuts. It seems wrong to me but it does center the wheel. Is it the right lug and washer.

I didn't know that Cragar made a Uni-Lug style wheel. Those washers and lugs appear to be right for those wheels

I had them on my 73 Mach One and I got to say they are a rear PITA to put on,
since the Wheel Holes are Slotted the Washers have to be in the right position to be able to get all the studs centered and the lug nuts on.


Cragar Series 08/61, they call them Multi Fit / Vari Fit

Years ago I had a set of ET mags with the offset washers but the wheels had a recess on the bolt hole that the washer set in for alignment. These wheels do not have that recess.

The little plate has to match the application and there were a huge PITA to install until we started taping the plates in place from the back.

I put a light smear of grease on the backside of one washer to hold it in place. Only needed one.
Always started at the top stud that was straight up. Snugged the lugnut up a bit and the other four were easy to install.
Once all five were good I’d go back and remove and clean the greased one.

that offset washer fits a 4 1/2" or 5" bolt pattern. You need centered oval washers for a 4 3/4" bolt pattern

Jegs has the correct washers for both types https://www.jegs.com/i/Cragar/260/KN...xoC5G4QAvD_BwE
