    Yep. But you will have to grind the front calipers on a D44, 10 bolt, or D60 to get them to fit. Not a real big deal though.

    15" STEEL rims will fit. NOT aluminum. Just wanted to clarify a bit.

    I'm running 3.5" of back spacing and had to do just a little bit of grinding. I have seen the amount of grinding that it takes to fit 4.125" or 4.25" of backspacing and it scares me! The less backspacing the better IMO.

    Are you sure on a 10b you have to grind? I have 15" rims on mine and never grinded a thing and neither did the previous owner...

    They fit. I have 15x10 with 4 1/8" backspacing on mine. It took alot of grinding on the D60 but the 14ff they fit with no problem.

    Steph, I think Hossbaby was referring to fitting 15" rims on 3/4 ton axles. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Re: 14 bolt and 15\" rims

    I have 15x10 Rockcrawler Steel wheels with 2.5" backspacing. I only had to remove about 1/8" on the caliper where it meets the wheel. They work great.

    Will

    Makes sense but he didn't say 3/4 ton so how was I to know what exactly he meant? /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    LMAO!! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Well, the way I saw it...read the subject title..."14 bolt and 15" rims" makes it obvious he is talking about the 3/4 ton axles here. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
