    OK... I got me a 14 bolt ff w/what i believe to be 4.11's... Can I take the 4.11's and have them put in my 12 bolt? I know I should use the 14 bolt, but I just got my new rims and tires not too long ago and dont want to buy new rims and wheels again... someone have a 12 bolt w/4.11's they wanna trade?

    Um... yes officer I know it's too big...

    I would try to keep the 14 bolt even if it ment to buy new rims and tires. But that is just me.

    the 14ff has a 10 1/2" ring gear. It won't fit.

    only a fool would choose a 12 bolt over a ff 14 bolt just for the sake of tires and wheels. You will spend more $$$ on replacing parts that break on your 12 bolt than you will have to fork out for new wheels. From what i have been told bart makes a set of 15 inch eight lug wheels that will fit on a ff14 bolt.

    <font color=blue>Every 15" 8 lug wheel I've seen fits over a 14 bolt. All you have to do is grind the front calipers to fit 15s. I have a set on a 14ff and d44.</font color=blue>
