    I know this has to have been asked a billion times so my apologies in advance. :(

    I've seen a bunch of builds with 2001s with 15" rims, and I'm about to pull the trigger on a lift and new tires/wheels. I have the stock 16x7s on there now.

    Will a set of 15x8s fit on my 2001 4x4? I'm doing a bit of a budget build and have a chance to grab a set of 15x8 6-lug wagon wheels for $100. I'm not against running spacers if I have to, I'm just concerned that they won't fit over the rotors. I'd love to be able to get these Duratracs on there.

    If anyone else has a 2001 like mine and confirm one way or the other, I'll owe you a beer. :)

    Here's my truck now, for reference:

    I have a 2000 with stock 15"alloys and (obviously) they clear the caliper just fine so as long as they didn't change their brake configuration too much in a year you should be able to run them no problem. I think it's 2nd gens that run the risk of clearing brake calipers more than 1st genz. we're cool like that :cool:

    It all depends on the back spacing. If you can find some with 3.75" or less BS they should fit.

    The wheels I'm running (wagon style) require trimming to clear the front of the caliper, though it's clearance on the face not the diameter.

    Hmm, also great to know, thanks. I have a set of 1.25" Spidertrax spacers on it already, so if it's just the wheel itself that should give me the clearance, yeah?

    I missed the first deal, but just paid for my lift and am on the mad tire/wheel hunt right now. A set of 5 15's is definitely cheaper than 5 16s so I'd really love to be able to go with the smaller diameter.

    What part did you have to trim on the wheel itself? (A pic would be awesome, if you have the time).

    DesertRat has a great deal on KM2s on rock crawlers that's right where my budget is, a little over a grand for 33's on 15s. (BFG08012US8458 / 33X10.50R15 BFG Mud Terrain T/A® KM2) I have 1.25" spacers and a 3" lift, but I'd hate to have them shipped across the country only to find out that they won't fit.
