    I'm about to pull the trigger on some new wheels, but I wanted to get a couple of opinions if anybody thinks they will fit without rubbing on the caliber.
    I'm looking at part number SUM-84-5765 from summit. They are 15x7 and have 3.75 inch back spacing. Will these rub? Any help is appreciated.

    I'd go to a 16" to be safe.
    The 6-lug comes with 16" and has issues with most 16" aftermarket.
    I've seen some 5 lug that are tight with even 16" alloys.... had a set on the Marketplace a couple of months ago where the owner had a wheel welded up where the caliper had worn it.

    Yeah I had to stay with 15 since my tires are already 15. Plus I like the look of more tire than rim.

    So it should fit than since our trucks have the same lug pattern it's just a matter of it rubbing in the brake caliper?

    Caliper rubbing.

    If you're buying local, no problem, you can mount them up and see if they rub, but if you're buying online from Summit, you may be SOL.

    Mowtaco. I know your a first gen but was there a decent amount of space between your wheels and the brake caliper?

    I think so, I guess I can check for you. Our problems arise from tire hitting spindle typically

    Awesome thanks Mowtaco. No worries about checking I was just concerned at first because I only have about the size of a credit card between my wheels and caliper bracket.
