Anyone on here running 15x10 steelies?

If so, I would like to know what backspace you are running. Thanks in advance. I want to buy only one set of wheels this time not 3 like my last project. I plan on some serious cutting to the bumpers and wheel wells as well as removing my fog lights and their brackets and the washer fluid reservoir. I wanted to start with no lift with 31 x 10.5 Yokohama Geolander ATs on 10 inch wide wheels (yeah I know I am kinda stretching the tires) but eventually, I want to run 35 or even 37 x 12.5-13.5 (which i would much rather have on 10 inch wide wheels vs 8s) with around 7-8 inches of lift.

Re: Anyone on here running 15x10 steelies?

Anyone? If not I guess I am going to be the first to try them. I am looking at either a 4" or 5" backspace as the stock wheels as approx 6" backspace (17x7.5" +50 offset)

I don't know of anybody running steelies on here but I think the biggest hurdle is gonna be rotor and caliper clearance.This is a tool that could really help.I've seen it a lot cheaper but I can't remember where. http://www.percyshp.com/store/Wheelr.../prod_112.html

Thanks. There are a few I have found running 15x8s with 4" backspace and most have not had to grind their calipers at all so I went ahead and ordered some 15x10 bart steel wheels with 4" backspace. I will test fit one of the fronts before I have my tires mounted just to make sure they will clear.
