    I now have a Dana 60 front and will be replacing my semi-floater 14 bolt with a FF. I was wondering if anyone knew about the strength of US Wheel steel wheels. I want to use them and was wondering if there is any reason why I shouldnt. I am running 38" swampers. I will most likely step up to 40" swampers next set of tires.

    I have the US Wheel White Trackers on mine. I have 35's now and will use the same wheels when I go up to 38.5's. They were pretty true when I got them balanced but the Swampers were another story.

    haha great thanks Wayne I was actually about to e-mail you after looking at your pics! What backspacing are those again, they look like 4 1/8 ?

    15x10 with 4 1/8 is correct. Just a tad bit of grinding on the calipers to fit that much backspacing.

    awesome. I ordered the chrome trackers in 15x10 4". they said they couldn't get 4 1/8 for some dumb reason but I didn't want 4 1/4. 4" should still keep it "legal" right?

    I have chrome trackers, 15x10, I've got 35s on them, no complaints. I've had them almost a year now.
