    Quick wheel questoin and i have already searched. I am about to order wheels for my 3/4 ton conversion i am going to run 15's cause i have good 15 inch tires. I was looking on national wheel and tire, at the eaton 15" steel wheels and it says 3.5" back spacing for minimal caliper grinding, but wouldn't i be able to grind lest with 2.5" back spacing. I just wanted to clear this up before i order. thanks for the info fellas.:bow:http://www.ntwonline.com/acb/showdetl.cfm?&DID=48&Product_ID=2202&CATID=11
    Edit: i will probly buy procomp extreme rockcrawler steel wheels.

    Ditto. I'm running the exact same wheel (15x10) and even paid the same price.

    It gets the side of the truck hella dirty but it's good enough until the tires wear out and I get some 16.5s

    I got the 15x8 because I wanted a bead lock effect. I had 15x10 and popped the tire off the bead at low pressure(about 8 psi), now it is not a problem.

    Narrower is definitely better if you're running low pressure. I never do, so I'm more concerned about even wear across the tread.

    Plus deeper wheels look better. :D
