    15" rim will require caliper grinding on the D60 for clearance. Personally I'm running my 35's on 16x8 rims. If I ever get new rims and go with bigger tires I'd probably get 17".

    I have 15x10 w/ 3.5" BS on my 1-tons. Had to grind the calipers but works fine. If you don't wanna grind then I'd suggest go to a 17"er

    Yes there is a reason the old 3/4 and 1 tons came with 16.5 inch wheels!! My 73 K20 needed ALOT of caliper grinding to fit 15x10's. The 14 bolt seems fine but the fronts will need alot of work. Think I spent 4 hours with a :grind: and it was not fun!!

    H2 wheels always get my vote. Cheap on eBay and sometimes here and PBB if you watch. 17" wheel.

    I think that H1's are steel and 16.5", but the H2's are alumium and are 17"

    also depends on if you plan on airing down at all. a 16.5 does a horriible job at holding a bead when aired down. 15 seems to be the best but i havent heard anything about 17s yet. does anyone have any experience?
