    I just finished mounting a 8'' lift and a Front Dana 60 but when I went to mount the tires they wouldn't fit the hubs?? Are 1 Ton rims different? Thanks for your help!

    Where do they hit? in the center? Or is it on the lugs?

    My brother has a Ford 60 under his...i think maybe he had to machine the hubs...?

    If you're running 15" wheels you will need to grind the calipers for the wheels to fit.

    In stock form, you need 16"+ wheels to clear a D60 caliper with reasonable back spacing. However, simple grinding and an afternoon of effort can allow you to mount 15" wheels on your D60. I run ground calipers on 2 of mine with no issues. Check this out for more info.

    The center of the wheel itself doesn't go over the hub , I'm trying to put stock steel 16.5 chevy rims on so I can move it around. Thanks for all your responses.

    My brother's stock chevy wheels wouldn't fit on my 2500 4x4 Ram. Something's going to have to be cut :D

    Where did your axle come from? All GM 3/4 and 1 ton wheels are the same AFAIK.
