    I'd assume the 6 piston are the fronts and the 4 piston are the rears? Very cool!/forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The rim has to have 14.6" of clearance inside to clear the front calipers which are the biggest ones. So if a steel 15" fits that then I guess so... But I doubt it. I'm running 16.5" hummer rims /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif.

    And yes, the 6's are for the front and the 4's are for the rear. I'm just waiting on the hub bearings for the 60/14 bolt so I can start putting all this stuff together...

    Holy [censored]!!! Just curious as why you need that kind of stopping power???? I have four wheel disc right now with stock 3/4 calipers and couldn't imagine needing more.

    That doesn't include the rotors which were $290.19 a pair /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Now you know why I only get a tiny bit done every 6 months or so... /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    have you seen his rig? 39.5s on a big time Crew Cab? You can always have more stopping power /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
