    How do those fit on a 8 lug rotor/caliper. Do you have to grid on the caliper? This sounds interesting

    yeah, I'm swapping out the 10 bolts and putting in a 14BFF and a D44 I got a deal on. Since I just blew my extra money on new axles, I couldn't blow more money on new tires and wheels. One Schwaby in my area happened to have some 15in 8 lugs laying around. I borrowed one and it fits of the drum rear but doesn't clear the calipers. I'm going to have to shave the caliper bracket that bolts over the spindle and grind on the calipers a bit too. But now I don't need new tires!

    16x7's would probably be too tight of a squeeze?

    I have 4 16x7 8-lug rusty chrome mods you could paint black. 40 bucks for 4 is about what the local Pull & Save gets... so I'd sell them for that.

    I am doing the same swap and this would save me a ton of money. Do you know who makes the wheels? Are they white wagon wheels?

    AWC, or Allied Wheel Components make 'em. I think I paid 45 each for the wheels, but they had them laying around for months and wanted to get rid of them. I think they retail for 55 or 60 bucks. The wheels they had laying around were white, but I bought a fifth wheel and had all 5 sent back to Prineville for black powercoating at 22 a wheel. 15x10 8x6.5 w/ 4 1/8 backspacing. Good luck! :waytogo:

    I paid $185 mounted, balanced, etc for 315/75/16 BFG All Terrains a few months ago at America's Tire. Get their internet pricing off the website and bring it in - they will match/beat any competitor. Don't think the Mud Terrains are much different in pricing but not sure.
