Will a 6.5" backspacing rim fit a dually D60 front?

    15x14 wheels with 6.5" bs.

    Will they fit and make the truck look like a SRW rather than a DRW?

    It should work it is only 1/2" to 1" less BS than a Hummer rim.

    Forgot to ask one other thing: calipers still need grinding, too? :confused:

    I thought it was only if you had a small amount of BS (like 1") that you did NOT have to grind 15" wheels to fit on a D60.? All I know is that my H1's fit fine :p

    With the dually front what is the stick out of the mounting flange 4-5"s. That would make the wheels fit the calipers like a 1"-2" backspaced wheel. If you have to grind at all it will be minimum nothing like my wheels with 4.25 backspacing:D .
