15" wheel on 2nd gen

Is it possible? Been looking into picking up a set of strictly offroad tires for wheeling trips. Because the lil 2.7 is just a hair...underpowered... I wanted something skinny. So 10.50 it is.

Also wanted something tall for clearance. So..34" it is.

Turns out the only offroad tire that i would run that comes in a 34x10.50..is for a 15" rim.

15" wheels are also dirt cheap so i wouldnt mind getting em all scratched and stuff while wheeling.

Any 15" wheel that will fit without modification? Are there even any 15" wheels that will fit WITH modification? Or is 16" the smallest you can go with our brakes?

I searched and found nothing

Sucks no one got back to you but I've heard only 16"s would fit the 2nd gens.

Well i was hoping someone has ground down the calipers and/or wheels to fit a 15 but looks like thats a negatory after googling for a few hours. Just gonna get 16's.

Yeah I would stick with 16"s if I was you cause I've heard from multiple people that 15" off-road tires are hard to come by these days.

With the open ended question of can 15" wheels be made to fit with modification, I would say absolutely, yes. How much modification is another story. You'd need ridiculous wheel spacers or the wheels would have to have to be made with the correct offset. Another option would be to completely redo the brakes so they clear the wheels. There's no easy, cheap and safe way to get 15's on a 6-lug 2nd gen without significant modification.

^ and THAT is what i needed to hear. Didnt realize it would require that much grinding/clearancing.

How much wheeling you plan on doing with your drop kit still installed? Or is that why you left the body lift on?

Just read the opening line of that thread:
"I bought a set of 15" pro comp steel wheels for my second gen. It has a 32" X 11.5 all terrain. I made them fit by adding a 1.25 spacer and grinding down on the calipers a bit. I love how it looks but I ended up busting the right caliper."

Since you have determined you are pretty much stuck with 16's there are still options close to what you want. First would be a 255/85r16 size tire. This size isn't super common but there are a few options out there. I run BFG KM2s in this size on my truck and absolutely love them. The tire works out to about 33.5 inches tall and 10 inches wide though this varies from one manufacturer to the next. Another option, though one that I would only consider for an off road only setup, is the Super Swamper LTB. The LTB is available in a 34x10.50x16, but it is a bias ply tire.
