Dana 60 /15" rim/backspacing/calip. clearence..

Yea,yea,yea... go search....

Here's the deal ... Who's sells cheap steel non beadlocked 15" x 8 or so 8 lug rims...... AND what amount of backspacing would you suggest to keep the width somewhat "stock" ..... FYI right now I'm running a Dana 35 (GASP!!) rear axle with 3.5" backspacing (15x8x33"x12.5")
The rear D60 measures 63" WMS to WMS..... I will be running a 37" tire of unknown brand or size.

The D60 is converted to Chebby discs . Just looking to see what my options are.

PART 2:

Does anyone have any photos of a D60 with caliper grindage on a 15" rim.. I'd like to see how much clearence we're talking about.

Jeff

I got mine from summit 15x8 with 3.5 BS had to grind 3/16" from the rear but alot less from the front. I bought the brackets from 2 different guys and the fronts were fit much better. I can't remember who I got the stuff from but they were both from this board.

all your questions have been covered at least 20 times. learn to use google and the fucking search button.

Dude what the fuck has changed with putting 15 inch rims on a stock dana 60 front from the time a person first put them on one ? NOTHING
you either grind the fucking calipers, run a more radical off-set rim, or change out the rotor/caliper.

you think "I" am a prick you aint seen shit around here have you.

Oh and thanks for the PM. grow some thicker skin if you plan on hanging around here

I think this sums it up

Um, I don't know how many write ups you need

You grind, install wheel, keep grinding till it turns freely. Thats about it. What else is there? More backspace=more grinding, and so forth.



Oh and as for who sells cheap steel wheels, have you tried a tire store?

you done stepped in some deep shit jeff

best thing to do is buy one wheel at a backspacing of your choice (like 2.75) from 4WHEEL PARTS in phx/mesa.......rock crawler as mentioned.....black......and try to fit on the 60. paint the caliper/caliper bracket with some grey primer, put wheel on best you can, turn wheel and listen to it rub, take wheel off, grind where the paint was rubbed, and REPEAT till it don't rub anymore. if this pleases ya......buy anther 3 or 4 wheels
