    Never heard of any issues. Detective Dan has a write up on how to make 15"s fit. But I think people clear them with 1.25" wheel spacers too. Why 15"s? Tire pirces?

    mhmmm I see. I'm not 100% if wheel spacers will solve the issue up front, but the rear drums are so small I reckon 15"s would fit no issue. But thats just me and my RECKONING. I like the look of 15"s just don't want to grind on my calipers lol.

    Can you just mount them up and check? I think you will be fine, the rear drums are so small.
