    Im getting a 1-ton rearend from the same guy as before, and I was wondering if I could use 15" wheels still in back, as long as they're 8-lug, or do I have to get bigger wheels and new tires as well?

    Thats a good question and one that I need answerd too. I was told you could fit a 15" over a 14bolt hub but I would have to see it to believe it. Not to mention the grinding that will have to be done if you take that wheel and stick it over the front callipars on a D44 or D60. Right ?
