    I just pulled off some 15 inchers. They are 8-lug no dents. I bought them in white from 4WPW and painted them rattle-can black. Had them since Nov last year. Make me an offer. I'm in West Texas

    I was going to convert my 1/2 to 3/4 ton and I wanted to go with 15 in rims so I didnt have to buy new tires. The guy from my local tire shop told me that I would have to grind down my calipers. Did you have to do that with yours?

    Close but not quite. With a 3/4 ton either the GM 10 bolt or the Dana 44 both require grinding on the backing plate and caliper.

    These are 8X15 with a 4.5 inch backspacing. Also SS solid screw type valve stems and lug nuts and two center caps. Any takers before they go to Ebay?
