15" on 5x5

Have a chance to get a deal on some used 37's but they are for 15" wheels. Anyone know who makes a set of steelies 15" 5x5? Could always use adapters too I guess. He wants 500 for the tires, or 700 with the wheels. Good deal?
Here they are.

buy the tires, not the wheels, unless you want to have a spacer/converter made.

Cragar soft 8's work 90% of the time on a JK.

I think this thing is finally coming together. Still Needed: drive shafts, frame mount rails...then done son! For a while...

15" steel wheels (Cragar, Unique) will require a spacer or modification to your caliper or they will hit your brakes.

MB72's, MB Chaos 5's, MB TKO, MB Razor, Black Rock Viper, Black Rock D-window Alloy will all clear your JK brakes without spacers or grinding of your caliper.

15" wheels do not always require a spacer or mods. Ask around, there are people running steel wheels with 4" of back spacing without spacers or caliper grinding.

Based on our test fitting 15" steel wheels and the number of returns we have had from customers that have purchased 15" steel wheels, they don't clear without some sort of modification or spacer. (neither of which we recommend) The flange created at the back side of the wheels holes hits the calipers. This is not the case with all sizes of steel wheels but has been the case with all 15" steel wheels that we have test fit.

My friend is running 15 x 8 soft 8's with 4 inches of backspace and no mods or spacers on his JK.
