What would be the ideal backspacing for a d60 and 14ff combo.
Something between 2.75" and 4.25". From what I understand too little or to much can cause bearing-wear issues. I have run both 4.25" and 3.5" BS wheels on my D60/ff14b with no issues.
What J said except if you are running 15" wheels you will need to grind the calipers for more than 2.75 BS and you probably can't go more than 3.75.
I am currently running 4.25 on 16" wheels, 15s on the way with 3.5 - I will be grinding
I am running 15s with 4.25 backspacing and they fit fine. However I did spend 3-4 hours grinding the **** out of the calipers.
Holy ****, big job! You feel that there is still plenty of material on the caliper? Do you trust it for DD duties?
Ya plenty of material. These calipers are ****in huge. I would say that even with all of the material I have ground off they are still thicker than 10 bolt calipers 1/2 or 3/4 ton. The thinnest portion which is around the edge of the "window" on the caliper is about 3/8 of an inch with the caliper increasing in thickness as you go out each direction from the window.
