Yes they will but if you have the matching frontend they will not fit on that unless you grind the caliper.

yup, I can show you how much I had to grind on my caliper if you come over.

EDIT- he has stock discs, not drums....

NO! You'll have to grind both or which I do not recommend, buy some washers and slip them over the studs if they are long enough. Then that will offset the rim so they stop rubbing.

about 9" wide after the beadlocks, but only 3.5" BS so they stick way out. I currently run these on my 44 front and 14 bolt rear with D44 disc brake conversion, but prostock wanted to know how much gridning he would need for a D60 front and a 14 bolt rear with stock discs...

it all depends on the offset. These rims have a small offset, so they fit over calipers easier.

Come take a look at mine to give you an idea of how much material has to be removed. I probably spent less than 30 min on each caliper....

It took me about 2 hours to do a frontend. You have to grind put the tire back on tighten up 2 lugnuts oppisite of each other and then spin the tire until it spins freely. I had to do it 10 times on each side. You might not have to do it that much if your offset away from the axle is good thats all it really depends on.

lol, I just grinded the hell out of it and tried it at the end... saved time of putting the tire on and off 10 times (that would take me 30 min per caliper of just putting the tire on and off)
