    I don't mean to Highjack but, which B/S requires the least Grinding of the calipers without sticking the wheels out too far for a tight trail?

    Well /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif you guys talked me out of the wheels with 5.5" of B/S. I thought that seemed a little excessive. Gues I'll keep looking for some that I won't have to worry about rubbing my springs when I turn. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Highjack again......Thanks for the info. Next question? Where is the cheapest place to get a set from, something in like a chrome mod or wagon wheel. I have a set of 16.5's in the black so a change would be nice.

    4WP's gave me a price of $83.00 for a chrome mod w/2.5" BS. Is that reasonable for an 8 lug 15" wheel or can I get it cheaper?
