I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY OF DAMAGE THAT YOU DO TO YOUR OWN VEHICLE. IF YOU DO NOT FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH DOING THIS MODIFICATION, BUY WHEELS THAT FIT. IF YOU DAMAGE YOUR CALIPER IT IS NOT MY PROBLEM
ok, so ive been looking around and there isnt a deffinate how to on this, so i fugured i would make one while i was doing it.
mods, sticky possibly?
ok. there are a few different tools you can use to do this. a file (which takes forever), a dremmel (very precise, this is also what i used), or a pneumatic grinder (i didnt like the idea of taking a grinder to my caliper lol)
I only had to grind down about 1/16 of an inch so its not like you are cutting half of the caliper or anything
start by breaking loose all of the lugnuts on one of the front wheels.
then using the bottle jack that came with your truck and lift one of the front wheels off the ground
completely remove all of the lugnuts and the wheel from the caliper and hub assembly.
then take your new wheel and place it on the hub assembly while pressing it flat against the hub. while pressing, rotate the wheel so that it "marks" where the wheel is hitting the caliper.
then take off the wheel and using your dremel or tool of choice, grind on the caliper where it is hitting.
the exposed are where it says "R1" is where mine grinds
this is what it should look like when you start grinding (all of the darker area on the caliper vein)
just grind a little bit, then place the wheel back on to "mark" it again to see if it is hitting, if it is, just grind down a little more. grind it just enough to where the wheel barely clears without rubbing. be very careful to not grind off too much. if you go too deep, you run the risk of damaging your caliper.
here is the final result of my caliper. every wheel will most likely be rubbing in about the same area as mine did, but there is always an exception.
after this you should be good to go!
