    I found a set of Ansen's 15"X7" wheels and put 750 X15" tires on my Jeep with 10" brakes and 11" will work on them too, if that helps Oldpappy.

    I'm reasonably certain that any 15" wheel off of a relatively modern Ford Pickup or Bronco is going to clear 11" Drum Brakes just fine, mainly due to the fact that that's what they had on them. Which is fine for the rear axle, it's the front where you run into issues, depending on which hubs you've got, usually the center hole in a Ford wheel isn't big enough to clear the 6-bolt front hubs on ECJ's
