    Anyone running 16" rims on their Dana 60? Don't want 16.5 due to the tire bead issue...................thanks.

    Yes, they will fit. You may have to do a little grinding on the calipers, but I know you can fit 15's on the 60 with a lot of grinding........

    I got Eagle rims (16x10) on my 60 and they clear the calipers. Not a whole lot of extra space but they fit.

    Yep, 16" wheels (including alum) will fit with no problems. Steve and I tried his 16" alum wheels on my front 60 and there was about 1/16" - 1/8" of gap left
