I'm running a 15X7 with 3.75 backspacing and a 31" tire.

I had to grind material off of the calipers, remove the "blackbox" and trim the inner fender liner.

I don't know if that helps but there you go

Bosmob,

Thank you for your help... im planning on 15x8 with 4.5" back space but not sure if this will work. I want the wheel/tire to flush with fender and not stick out..

Kdogg, so you just used the spacers to clear the caliper? Didn't need to grind them down or anything?

Truck looks good!
