Hello, just got done doing the 6 lug cpp disc brake conversion for the front on my 53 ,3100, yes the factory 15" rims do not fit, was planning on new rims and tires anyway. What 15, or 16" rims will work with this application? Looking for new rims?

I have the CPP kit on my 63 and 65 C10s. I like old school slotted wheels. They fit fine.

Make sure you have the correct wheel spacing. I just went through hell with this kit. I got 6 on 140mm. 6 on 5.5 is very close, but not close enough.
