terry of all the things I did to my truck I agonized most over wheels and
tires.I ended up with 15x7 front with 235 75r15. in back I went with 15x8
wheels and 31x11.00 tires. the fronts I ordered with 4 1/2 backspacing and
the backs had 6 1/2 backspace.I have a heidt's front end and a dana 4:11
posi rear end.
good luck and try a different back space this may help
