Alight many problems here. Number 1 is that fords and Chevys do not have the same lug pattern, so there's no way they fit both, like he said in the ad. Second problem is that 15s don't clear the brake calipers on 2nd gen tacomas.

I assume the part he bolded, about requiring a 3" lift for 33" tires.

Ah, bold doesn't show up on tapatalk. And he and I have discussed this before. It is not right to tell someone that they fit just because 1 in 1000 people have gotten it to fit. It's like saying you won't die if you jump off a cliff, because one person didn't.

And it doesn't matter anyways, because the tires are 30s and I misread it as 33s, which is why I edited it out immediately.

I assume you *could* fit 33's w/o a lift, just a lot of cutting and modification would be necessary. Not to mention spacers.
