    14B DISC BRAKE W/15\" WHEELS?

    i found some baja claws i want 38.5/16/15 only have this size in 15" rim size so i wondered if you have a disc brake conversion on a 14bolt could you fit a 15" rim?

    <font color=blue>I have a 14ff with the TSM conversion and 15x10 blackspokes. They fit fine on the rear, but you have to grind the front calipers. No big deal. I will have pictures sometime next week.</font color=blue>

    <font color=blue>Thats a little harder. I hear you need spacers and it requires a LOT of grinding, but the calipers are huge so it wont matter.</font color=blue>

    Was reading the message board on pirate offroad.Someone said that you could machine the center of a dana 44 roter larger then install it and make custom brackets for the rotors and clear a 15 inch rim.I will be tring to do it this winter.seeing as i have too much money in rims and tires that are 15 inch.

    <font color=blue>My 14 bolt is from an 83 1-ton and my wheels fit over the stock drums with room to spare, you dont need disks to clear 15s on a 14 bolt. You will, however need to grind the front calipers a lot but thats easy</font color=blue>
