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

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".

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:).

I am going to go with 40" bias ply IROCKS right now, I just didnt know how much of a difference load range D tires would make. I wanted to run 15's so i could stay with load range C tires.

There are a couple different options.

1.) trim up your brake calipers like this...

or convert to 3/4 ton brakes in the front. :)
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?

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.
