Post 15 inch wheels on 3/4 chevy discs?????

I have a dana 44 with the 8 lug set up and a dana 60 with the same rotors and cadillac calipers. I have 15" tires and dont want to have to get new tires for 16" wheels. What 15" steel wheel will fit over these brakes? What backspacing? Thanks

I have a 14 bolt with F250 rotors and cadilac calipers, my 15x10s fit over those without grinding. I had to grind my front calipers and some of the backing plate to get the 15s on my dana 44 front. My wheels are 4 1/8" backspace. You can use any backspace you want, but the further out the wheel is from the axle, the less grinding you need to do.
