I'm not familiar with that paticular wheel but my 15x8 rockcralwer lock wheels w/3.75" backspacing required me to shave the caliper a few mm's with a dremel w/a sanding drum on it, so obviously it wasn't a big job or anything. My wheel has D shaped stamped holes however and those seem to be what causes the rubbing so unless yours are cast so that they have a ridge extending out of the wheel pattern to the back you should be fine.

Some Eagle's rub and some don't. The wheels KStacoma was talking about are steel, so they're a little different, because they're stamped. I have Eagle 058's, and I had to grind a small amount off the calipers. If you're worried about grinding your calipers, you could look into getting a 1/4" wheel spacer to move the wheels out a tad. OR, since you just ordered your wheels, you could possibly cancel the order and find some rims that will not have any fitment issues.

I looked those up and the picture shows 10 Round holes, they dont look like all the types i've seen that rub on it. Mine for example had the D shaped stamped holes that taper into the back of the wheel. Those i'd say will not need any grindage.
