Is it possible to swap the calipers with 4.5 calipers?

I think it would have to be discs and calipers, and then there may be issues on how it bolts onto the hub.... and and and..... no I wouldn't try that. There is a reason the brakes are bigger on a 4.8

Hells Bells...

All this to try save some money on tyres.

But 35s do look great on a 15" rim.

I have 16inch steelies on my 4.8. The problem with tight tollerances is when a stone or something gets in there...

Agreed!

I currently have 16" pick-up steelies on mine too.

I dont want to mess with the brakes. Especially since I plan to put a little boost to her soon...
