wheel question

im posting here and SWB cuz more people look here:
im trying to decide whether or not to do 8 lug wheels for my d44/d60 that i have to install, or convert to 5 lug... right now the 44 front is 6 lug so no matter what it has to change, but the rear is a FF so its already 8 lug. I already have 5x5.5 wheels so im not sure what to do, or if the brake parts will fit my 15 inch wheels anyway (esp. the d60 drums. let me know what you think, I REALLY need some advice. thanks, Jonathan [email protected]

Re: wheel question

I like Brian's D60 centersection idea. I'd stick with the 5x5.5 if you already have the tires for it. Besides, if you blow one, you can always borrow a spare from another jeep, not everyone runs an 8 lug rim.
