Will 15 incher\'s clear a 14bolt FF rear disc conv?

Ok so the other week I was talking about converting my K20's 14 bolt to rear discs. Well I've pretty much made up my mind to do it once I get the thing all back together (timing chain cover was leaking).

Anyhow my choice of tire for this rig was going to be 38x12.50x15 TSL's, but I'm wondering now if the 15x10 8-lugs will clear the rear disc conversion? Planning on getting the US Wheel 70 Series white spokes from www.Tyres1.com

Yes. The clearance is identical to the front axle rotor/caliper assembly.

So in other words they will fit with grinding, just like the front.

<font color=blue>Rear disks do not require grinding to fit 15s. What brackets are you using?

I stand corrected. I *assumed* since BigBadCad said they were the same as the front, the wheel clearance would be the same.

<font color=blue>They may be the same rotors and calipers as the front, but unless he's using a pair of stock front backing plates to fit the 14ff, then they will clear.
