    15\" Wheels or 16\" Wheels - Again!!

    No, I don't need to know if 15's will fit on a D60 - we've been through that too many times already!![​IMG][​IMG]

    My question is that I've been looking at the wheel load ratings on the 15" steelies and they're kinda low! Like 1500lbs or so! The 16x8 & 16x10 Mickey Thompson II's & the Eagle are in the high 2000 # - low 3000 # range.
    Should I skip the 15's and go with the safety margin of the 16's?? The main reason I wanted 15's was for both tire selection and the price of 15" tires vs all others.

    Thanks

    Hey Brian,
    How about the Eaton or Bart type wheels?
