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]

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.
