I fail to see the problem, I have 42" Irocks mounted on 17" rims that are Load range C. Just because you go with a larger axle, does not mean that you have to go with a heavier load range tire. One is not relevant to the other.

I read the link but it only refers to GM D60's. Tha one I am looking at is from a 93 F350. Are they the same?

Hackle You can make 15's work but, if you are installing D60's it would seem the build will stay at that level for a while. Bite the bullet and get some 17" rims. as you will end up with at least 37" tires.
With 37" and above you will never miss the sidewall flex from a smaller rim. JMHO BTW 17's on the big tires looks better also.

bluvikng If it will fit over your brakes, then you are good to go. That is why they usually go with 16.5, or 17" rims. You have more choices of tires if you go with the 17".

15" rim on d60

Can you run a 15" rim on an 8 lug d60?
