    Unfortunately I haven't installed that diff yet so I'm still running on the factory 7.5

    Kindly update your thread when you do decide on your Weld Prostars..... I want a set in the 15X7 and 15X8 and I keep window shopping. I haven't been able to truly find a good deal on them. You can PM me to keep your thread clean without my interference. Thanks, now back to our regular programming.:)

    15x8 with 4" backspacing, BFG Radial TA, and stock 7.5" will be tight but will work if not lowered too far.

    I had 15x8 Centerline's with a 4.5"BS and a 235/60/15 BFG TA. They were close to the frame with the 8.5" rear, but never rubbed.

    In the long run, it's a lot cheaper than a cocaine habit............the parts sellers are our dealers.........and they know we will pay "through the nose" :ROFLMAO:sometimes to get what we want.

    I ran 15x8 4 inch backspace with 275/60/15 for my Malibu lowered 1 inch no rubbing. Now it has 17x9.5 with 275/40/17 still lowered 1inch with no rubbing.

    Look at Vision Wheels. They look decent, are decent quality and they are budget minded. 29894118_1678584208915232_1287927805_o.jpg
