    so this is about the 4-5th post of mine on the subject... sorry.. I was in the process of buying the wheels i want, come to find out they only come in one 'option' with an 8-lug; and it's a 15x8 cragar black steel rim, with 4.5" backspacing. will that backspacing be able to fit up front with the 10 bolt without shaving the calipers?? if not, how much do i have to shave off?? is that amount safe?? are there wheel spacers available to space it out more if i don't wanna shave the calipers?? thanks, and sorry for the repetition..

    You will have to grind on the backing plates on a 3/4 ton 10b. The calipers might need a smoothing, but nothing much. I have pics at home of how much I had to grind the back plates. I will post them up if i remember.

    Ya, you will need to grind a little bit. Its not that big of a deal. Just put a mask on so your not blowing out black snot for a day or two!
