    I'm intersted in getting 15 x 12 black wheel simulock 8 lug wheels. Does anyone know where to get them? Also what size of back spacing should I use?
    This will be on 1 ton running gear if it makes a difference?

    FWIW, this has been covered a hundred times over.

    15's will clear 1 tons with some caliper grinding. 2.75" b.s. requires a very small amount of caliper grinding, like taking the casting mark off the caliper. 4.25" requires an average of 2-3 hours per side of grinding. Both b.s.'s will clear the rear drums but with a rear disc conversion people have mixed results as to whether to grind or not.

    When it comes to 8 lug 15's, call people instead of looking at their internet sites. There are a ton of them that aren't listed on the internet.

    15" 8 lug rims

    I think tire choices are better with 15" rims
