    ok I know that in order to fit a 15" rim on dana 60 is to grind the caliper but do have to do any thing special to a 14ff to fit them like convert to disk brakes ? also where can i find a8 lug 15" rim and what is the advantage to using a 15" rim instead of an other size?

    thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif

    not sure on teh 14ff, on the 15's advantages they have a safety bead to keep your tire from comin off the rim at low psi like a 16.5 (no safety bead) will, and they have more sizes in tires and generally have cheaper tires than the 16's which also have a safety bead.

    Yes, a 15" rim will fit over a 14ff without any modifications. As to where to buy a 15" 8 lug wheel, there are quite a few places. I got mine from tyres international (they are steel monster wheels so they were kind of pricey at $162 for 2 of them), and I know summit racing has them for about $50 a piece.
