    What company sells 15 inch 8 lug wheels? Will they fit with a 14 bolt disk brake conversion? What area on the caliper needs to be grinded off?
    Thanks in advance,
    Jeff

    I got mine from the tire store. And they fit just fine on the disc conversion.

    Do a search, there was just a huge post about 15" 8 lug wheels in the last month or so.

    The amount of caliper grinding will be determined by the amout of backspacing the wheels have. Less backspacing= less grinding.

  7. What kind of 15" 8 lug rim are you looking for? a regulare rim or a bead lock rim. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    Regular el-cheapo rims in the 15. I plan to get some hummer wheels later on. I have some good 15" tires with nothing to put on.
     
  9. try looking in the fourwheeler mags. they all have good prices.
