    Ok I'm going to be putting a Dana 60 in the rear and will up grade to 3/4 ton Dana 44 8 lug hub's. Both have disk brakes and 4.56's the front has a ARB the rear is welded.
    At the moment I'm 35 BFG's on 15x10 with a 2.5 lift with a 1in body. I plan on staying with 35's. But I would like some input about wheel size, I'm still looking for a tire that will last the best it can with a welded rearend. The truck is a daly driver Thanks Guys for the input.

    I run my d60/14 bolt with 15"-8lug wheel with about 4" bbackspacing. I like it.

    If you want to you can run 15" wheels. I run 16.5's right now and i have a 14b and an 8 lug 44. you wouldn't need to grind or anything to stay 15's. When i did my swap i found out that the 44 8lug hd uses the same calipers and pads as my 10b front.
