can 15\" wheels clear on 1 ton axles
 
I wanted to put 1 ton alxes on my blazer now that i snaped my front 10 bolt. But i have 15x10 wheels with new 35" rubber. I want to know if im going to be able to use the 15" wheels, or if im SOL.

Re: can 15\" wheels clear on 1 ton axles
 
You can use 15" wheels on a Dna 60, but you will have to grind the calipers and bracket. Depending on what backspacing you use, the more or less you will have to grind. I have a set of 15x8" wheels with 4 1/4", and I had to grind quite a bit to get them to clear. But if you get a 2" b/s wheel, then you won't have to grind as much. I will try to get a pic of it, if I ever get the motovation to do anything today.. [img]images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img]

Im running 15x10 american racing wheels and i dont know what the back spacing is on them. What about the rear drums will they clear also?

I think the rear will fit no probs.

I have 15x10 with 3.25" BS and had to grind a bit off. I have disk brakes in the rear and had to slightly grind them too but I know guys with drums and 15s and no grinding required.
