Not on a ford !! Four piston calipers can't grind enough, on a Chevy you can grind and make them fit.

you can with the proper back spacing but it will make the tires stick waaay past the body.

you can buy brackets from blackbird customs to run a chevy 3/4 ton caliper and rotor works welll its what i run never been an issue and my truck stop pretty damn good and im on 44s[cheers]

15s more side wall...more sidewall means more contact patch to the ground when aired down

l've got 16 aluminum wheels and seems l have lots of room around the breaks on mine. wheels dont stick out much at all.

grinding calipers that much to fit a 15'' rim is ghetto

also putting smaller chevy brake parts on a ford is ghetto[f] ginger

It really is true 17 is the new 15. I think it depends on what the sidewall is made out of to.
