    Yes, they will fit no problem.

    It's the front axle on 3/4 tons and 1 tons that you need to address to make the rim fit around the calipers. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    but, according to one of the other posts, i thought 1/2 and 3/4 had the exact same brakes. there is no difference in rotor size. the calipers are interchangable between the two axles. so???

    The rotors are larger, but the calipers are the same. The choice is to grind or get 16" or larger rims.

    Just FYI this topic has been discussed ad nauseum...try the search feature please.

    8 lug rotors are larger in diameter and require 8 lug backing plates.The calipers are interchangeable.
