    ummmm, if you run wheels designed for the axle you don't have to grind and you could run a positive offset if you wanted to:wink1:

    very true but that doesn't change the fact that you don't have to grind on a D60 to fit 16.5" rims.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe a D60 was designed to fit under a chevy 4x4

    no shooting necessary, I run 16.5's and I got real tired of them rolling tires off the rim until I put rim screws in

    Thats what i meant, I was just typing too fast again. The Hummer H1 beadlocks that i have on my blazer for trails are 16.5 and the hummer H1 civilian wheels (aluminium) that I use for the street are 17s.
