    Any one know if a 15 in rim will clear a d60 rear and if anyone makes a 15" rim with a 8 lug pattern?

    Yep and yep. I'm not running a 60 rear, but I do have 8 lug 15's. Mine are the steel wagon wheel style. I got the from 4wp.

    damn ...Ive checked like 5 different wheel manufacturers and I can't fine an 8lug 15" rim .......next train of thought are there any vehicles that came stock with that set up. I need to get rid of these 16.5 in rims so I can get a new (used ) set of tires for cheap. It seems like no one is ever selling 40" tires that use a 16.5in rim... :mad:

    When I was getting my rims, I found that most sites didn't even list 15" 8 luggers. I ended up calling 4wp's and made them look them up in the books. They only cost me around $37 each shipped to my door and I got 5 rims.

    Yo tazz..are yours 15x8's or 15x10's? Did you have to grind on the front calipers to make them fit w/ the 8 lug conversion?

    Mine are 15 x 8's, I didn't have to grind the front calipers cause I opted to get 2.750 BS. Depending on how your calipers were cast, you might or might not have to grind with 3.000, but anything more and you will.
