    I may be wrong but I dont believe that 15 inch wheels fit on one ton gear without grinding down the brake calipers and getting different rear drums.

    Your 1/2 right. 15" wheels wont fit over 3/4 ton front rotors (8 lug D44 or 10B), and they also wont fit over D60 1-ton fronts. To solve this problem, simply grind down the excess metal on the calipers until the wheel no longer hits. As for the rear 14ff, 15" wheels WILL fit over the stock drums. No need to clearance these or change drums.

    Exactly, I run the same exact rim in a US Wheel flavor vice Cragen but same specs and I have a 60 that I ground a ton on and a stock 14FF with the large drums.

    I have the small drums on my 14ff so that is what i was concerned about. The fronts were not a problem. What about the backspacing? All good with what the wheel says it has?
