Hey guys whats up? So my issue is i'm looking at a 83 3/4 ton p/u. I already have 38" tires on 15" wheels chev 8bolt. I know the back bolt on but how much and where do i grind the front calipers to make the front wheels fit?

do u have the large 1 ton calipers or just the half ton ones of done both ... hade to take about a half inch of the large ones ... use a rim without a tire for fitting way less work ....

on pirate, google a member called gutter runner. He had a cool technique of cutting a cross-hatch pattern in the rotor to see how much he needs to take off. Looked simple and efficient.
