    15\" wheels with 13\" rotors?

    I have a D44 and a 14ff, both with 13" rotors. Will I be able to run a 15" wheel? I know I can with the smaller 11" rotor, but wasnt sure about the larger rotors. What about the backspacing, 4" or 4.5"? One last question is where can I get the wheel spacers to make the rear the same width as the front and how big of a spacer is needed?

    You can run 15" steel wheels but will have to grind the caliper to make it fit. I went with 3.5" BS to not have to grind as much. With 4.25 BS you have to grind allot.

    You need 1.5" spacers in the rear for it to match the front...
    Or a 14FF from a 1 ton van.
