    question for thoses running a d60 and 15\" rims

    What backspacing are you running and how much did you have toi grind? I fond some rock crawler rims for $50 a piece and Im wanting to know what BS I should run.

    2.75" and they barely rubbed when i put them on. Just a bit of grinding to make me feel better.
    2.75" sticks the tire pretty far outside the wheelwell though... the rotor isn't quite tucked inside the rim anymore.

    4.25 and I had to grind the $%^% out of my 10 bolt to make them fit.....I'll let you know on the '60, but I know I'll be grinding for a while.

    2.5" BS and only had to grind about 30 seconds on 1 side only. I think I got the 2 rims from 4 wheel parts shipped to my door for $90.

    4.25" of bs on da street rimz. 1st time I did it, prolly 4 hrs per side.... second time more like 2 hrs/side. 4.5" angle grinder both times. It takes a while but I liked to really take my time on something like this. If you painted mine up all bling they would look pretty much like the factory has designed em that way. I really tried to smooth things out nice and even. Worked for me.
