    will 15x10's with about 3.5 b.s. fit on a 1 ton d44 front and a 14bFF rear with disc conversion?

    and if they will, does anyone know who makes an aluminum wheel thats 15x10 and 8x6.5, i can only find steelies in that size.

    thanks

    Got pics of that "1 ton d44 front" ??? Cause I've never seen one. A 8 lug Dana 44 is still just a 1/2 ton axle with 8 lug outers. You have too step up to a Dana 60 if you want a 1 ton front axle. They don't make aluminum rims in 15" and 8 lugs. You may have too grind your calipers, but no big deal.

    i didn't pull the d44, i was just told it was pulled out of a 1 ton, guess it wasn't. doesn't matter i practically stole the d44 and 14boltFF both with 4.56's for next to nothing. i just wanted to run my 15 inch 35's on the 8 lug axles b/c it will be awhile before i can afford a set of 37's or 38's


    so will 15x10 steels with about 3.5 b.s. fit the d44 and the 14bFF with rear disc?

    no one makes a 15x10, 8 on 6.5. I don't believe it woudl fit front or rear. Aluminum rims are thicker than steel ones so they there is less space inside the rim.

    yea they make 15x10 steelies, I got mine from summit racing, they are made my U.S wheels, and are white but i painted them black, good thing is sumit has no shipping just a small handleing fee.
