    I'm wondering if 15 inch rims will clear on these swaps or do you have to grind the calipers like the front ??? I have 16.5 rims but my buddy just bought 15 inch eatons and were wanting to do the disc brake thing on our trucks probaly get the complete setups from atron /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    15x14's if you can afford them especially since your running 15's cuz your less likely to pop the bead like my 16.5 rim /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    Thanks for your input I was leaning pretty had in that direction. Thanks I will stop highjacking your post now. But at least we are keeping it on top till you get all your questions answered.

    This is an old pic, but it shows how much room is left with a 15" wheel. Lots of room, no worries.

    I'm running Eaton 15x10's with 3.5" of back spacing. I had to knock off some casting flash off the calipers to get them to clear. I love the Eaton wheels.
