Fronts are a 17x4.5" Racestar wheel in 5x4.5 bolt pattern. Had to use some 1.25" thick 5x5.5 to 5x4.5 adapters to make the fronts work. Running 28x4.5x17 M&H tires on the fronts.

Great idea on the adaptors on the front they don't offer much for 5x5.5 what did you buy/make for a rear brake set up to clear 15s and lug nuts for the rims seam to be an issue did you swap studds..

My rear brake setup is completely custom. We used a 2 piece F150 rotor with an S10 2 piston Wilwood caliper. Had to build some caliper mounting brackets as well, but it is a lightweight setup, and works great. SSBC makes a disc conversion for the 2nd gen Ram trucks though that is almost a straight bolt on setup. That is what most guys are running when switching to 15" rears.


As for the fronts, nobody makes a skinny wheel in a 5x5.5. The adapters I bought had 1/2" studs, so I replaced them with longer 9/16" studs to match the rears. I have been running it this way for about a year now without any problems.

Wow, they look a lot shorter than that. I'm running 245/70/17's on my street fronts, and they look huge compared to yours. I was looking to step down to a smaller tire for nights when I am just testing a new part and don't feel like messing with the skinnies.
