    Hello All,
    OK - Wes has my D60 ready so I need to make a decision on wheels. I like the looks of the 'MT Classic II' (see otherpost by 90blzr, pics of DP90K5)
    )

    I need to know backspacing for the following:
    91K5
    D60/14FF (disks from ORU on 14 bolt)
    4"-5" lift
    35x12.50x16 Goodyear MT/Rs

    My initial quote for the tires and wheels - $410 per. mounted, balanced, nuts and road hazard (about $190/tire and $140/wheel)

    Thanks,

    Dave

    I'm got 4" of backspacing on 4" lift with a 14B FF in back and a D44 up front with 35x12x5 and it seems to have a good turning radius etc...

    Since you're going with 16" wheels, I would go with the standard backspacing (4.25"), that's what I went with. But 4" aint bad either....

    Boss,
    No rubbing on springs when flexing?
    The wheels fit over the D60 calipers?
    The 4.25" is the standard for MT 16x10 and is available here.
    Just want to confirm that there are no probs.

    Thanks Solo and Boss.

    no, no rubbing on springs...doesn't even get close. (Even when flexed) No tie rod rubs either.
    Yes, it will fit over the D60 calipers. As long as we're talking 16" wheels here. 15" is another story.

    Yeah and I remeber your deal also. Again - you dog! Still as good of a deal as what it looked like?
    So - 4spd or auto? Still deciding?
