I do not know anything about the kit you bought. But is does recommend 15" wheels. That's likely 'required'.

This is something i did not notice while ordering... :crazy :

Be prepared to change wheels and tires. Also, the wheel covers for a 14" wheel will not work with 15's.

More money going with this stupid mistake of mine, not reading everything three times.

Did you intend to also convert to front discs?

  • japete92 Said:

Power brakes can be 'added' to the drums w/o changing to front discs. If accomplished as GM did it, no 'other' changes are required.

This might be my savior for not buying new set of wheels!
BUT, i'm investigating reasonable priced wire spoke wheels 15", looks pretty expensive especially for shipping & handling costs.
There are used sets available, but 99% of ads says "pick up, no shipping". Ebay and Craigslist sellers do not put extra effort sending stuff over seas... Unfortunately
