Wheel Question?

I've seen in past threads that a 15" rim will not fit my 02 tacoma trd because of brake calipers. But a coworker has the same year trd I have except his is std cab and a 4 banger and he is running 15's without wheel spacers..?Do our trucks have different calipers or is there a 15" that will fit my truck Only reason I'm asking is I'm getting a 3"toytec spacer lift w/ rear AAL and bigger tires cost alot more on a 16" than a 15 also 15" wheels are cheaper.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.
