    Dana 60 with 15\" wheel

    Hey I want to use a Dana 60 up front but retain a 15" wheel due to my 6 lug 14-bolt SF rear. I have been looking everywhere for a wheel that is 15" and 8 lugs but cannot find one. Where can I find the wheel im looking for?

    <font color=blue>He can have the Dana 60 hubs machined to 6 lug but its $$$$$

    Both trucks in my driveway have 15x10 8 lug wheels, one truck has a 60. Mine are American Racing white wagons (at least they were white when I got them) but US wheel, Stockton, 4 Wheel Parts, Wheel Vintiques and others also make them. Summit has whitespokes on sale for about $30

    not really, just if you have a flat you need 2 different rims

    Re: Dana 60 with 15\" wheel

    thats really odd I called American Racing yesterday and they said that they dont make 8 lug 15x10s. What a bunch of liers. haha well I guess I'll call them again. I'll check out those other places too. I dont want it machined that will cost way too much.

    I know for FACT that American Racing makes 15x10 8 luggers.

    But forget about anything aluminum. It MUST be steel.

    You can get steel 15 inchers from Summit made by US Wheel. Also 4WPW can get another brand of steels. Aluminum won't fit the 60.

    You might want to try National Tire and Wheel, thats where I purchased mine from.

    <a target="_blank" href=http://www.ntwonline.com>www.ntwonline.com</a>

    Also to fit 15s on a D60 I ordered mine with a 3 1/2" backspacing and had to grind the calipers.

    Re: Dana 60 with 15\" wheel

    I got mine from Summit Racing. They are 15x10 with 4 1/8" backspacing. For that much backspacing you can't be scard of a grinder.
