14inch wheels
My Sierra came with 14inch wheels which I would like to retain, could someone please tell me what the clearance is between bottom bolt in rear upright and alloy rim is on a 15inch wheel?

I have done an on the back of a fag packet drawing and 14inch wont go with std uprights at 170mm radius.

now how about if I move RU6 up 15mm in my assembly of the upright, this will give a clearance, Do you feel this would be of eny detriment to the suspension.

14" steels only just fit as do 15" alloys!

I just went out and measured the inner diameter of several wheels I have in the garage at about where the rear upright bolt sits. In 14" steel wheels it's indeed ~345mm, but in the 15" it was 365 and 369 or so.

With a 15" alloy wheel I can fit a finger between the wheel and the bolt, but the knucke is catching a bit.
