    Default I hate dumb people!

    Been working on the truck lately for some needed maintenance. So I finally get to my brakes yesterday and this is rotors/pads/calipers on all 4! I painted my calipers to accent my truck get everything bolted up and the system bled. Go to put my rear wheels on and they don't fit. The calipers are too big. So I grab my old caliper and see Bubba ground down the caliper to get these Denali wheels to fit on the truck! So here I am taking a grinder to my caliper to get the wheels to fit! Still have to go back tonight and finish it up. Now I'm looking for new wheels as the fit is so tight I believe it will hang up the caliper in the future!
