    4" should work just fine with a 16" or bigger diameter wheel.

    what rims size for tires are you going to run? and are you going to do a 60 front soon?

    if 15" and 60 front soon then run 2.75 backspace rims as it will clear the calipers with no problems and no grinding. if not then just the 4.25 backspace that all run.

    im going to be running 15x10 rims on the 14 bolt, i also have the smaller of the 14 bolt drums on there. its not the big "semi truck" drums. so 4" should be good?...to make them level with a d44 front?
