    Hey guys,
    What exactly do I need to convert my 6lug D44 to an 8 lug? Do I need to buy new spindles, hubs, and rotors. I want to do this relatively cheap. Any suggestions, also is their any way to run 15 inch rims with a 14 bolt? I hate to get rid of my tires. Thanks. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    This should tell you all you need to know.

    And yes, you can run 15" rims on a 14. Providing you don't have the larger 1 ton brakes. If you have the 3/4 ton you should be fine. Personally, I'm running 16's /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
