Unfortunately Halfton, the 8-3/4 will not be available for at least a month. Currently it’s in a friend’s 64 Fury Wagon. I brought the 10” rims home today. I’m considering mounting 275/60/15’s since they measure 10.8 wide. I’m determined to stuff these 10’s under the fender; the 275’s will make it easier. I’m going to pick up a Ford Ranger rearend tomorrow to use just for mock up. Ranger diff’s are 58.12” wide. By my calculations, a 59” wide diff would center the 275’s in the fender with approximately ” on either side. I would prefer at least ” on either side. Olnolan, that’s a good idea with the longer fender brace. My truck is a GMC; I have more pictures on my project journal.
