    15" rims are compat with ff14b axles, i run 2 different sets on mine with different backspacing (4.25" and 2.5") and clearance is never even close to a problem.

    I have M/T Classic II's 15x10 with 3.5" backspacing (cast aluminum) and they fit just fine on my 3/4 ton 14BFF on drum brakes. They fit with my Echobit disc kit too, but I wouldn't use any more than 3.5" backspacing with a disc brake setup. I have at least 3/4" clearance at the closest point (near the caliper).

    I run 6-lug M/T's with the Echobit 8-6 Lug setup. The truck is back home now, next time I get to it I'll take some pics.

    They used to make the SR-series wheels in 15" and aluinum with options of 5, 6 or 8 lug patterns and backspaicing from 2" all the way to 8".

    Unfortunately, they have discontinued this line of wheels. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    ive seen 15" aluminum 6 lugs on a disc brake converted 14bff with tony p's adapters...wheel isnt even close to the caliper..only thing is you will need to have the hub machined to make a 6 lug wheel and the adapter fit over it..
