    I have 15x10's with 4 1/8" backspacing on mine, and I have the big drums. They clear with no problem.

    You have to remember the drum will be turning with the rim so even if you stick the wheel on drum, no problem.
    With the disk setup the disk and the wheel turn, but the caliper has to stay stationnary so here you will need clearance and to account for some movement without rubbing.

    The problem is never out back.....it's when you finally go to a D60 up front that things will get "interesting".....

    The "Technical Articles" should help you through it though. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I bought my rims from 4wheelparts.com and got them in one week. I ordered 16x10 and they are just black wagon wheels but they look decent enough, clear my Dana 60 brake calipers, and they were cheep!

    It took 6 weeks to get mine from Summit. They told me it would take a few weeks to get them but I didn't think it would be that long. I found out they were part of a Summit order of 1000 wheels from US Wheel. If I wanted them sooner I could have got Summit to just drop ship them right from US Wheel.

    I learned the hard way to always ask if what you are ordering from summit/jegs is in stock. I waited 8 weeks for a compcams cam from summit because comp had switched lifters and shipped to its customers first and then to smmit/jegs. I've had good luck with wheel and tire combos from nat'l tire and wheel. I think summit/jegs are so big they don't worry about dissapointng a customer every now and then. Just my opinion though. And we know what opinions are.

    I ordered my 15x10, 8-lug, Nomad II's (the chromed version of the Nomad) from Jeg's and had them in about 4 days. But I asked if they were in stock before I placed the order. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif The guy said he had 66 of 'em sitting in the warehouse. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I paid $66 each for the Nomad II's, but I noticed the price has gone up a couple of bucks since then. They're $68 or $69 each now.
