    thats awesome news because i just called four wheel parts and they told me that they wouldnt. i have proved them wrong so many times before that im not exactly why i called them. maybe he was thinking 2nd gens or something

    now not all 15's will fit so be careful on what one's you buy. for instance my rims will not fit with the center caps installed but I like it with no center caps any way.

    Say it with me...."Fuck 4WP"
    To start, they couldn't balance a tire to save their ass.
    More importantly, they don't know shit about Toyotas.

    If you MUST order from 4WP (cause its hard to beat their prices and they do price match and beat anyone), don't listen to what they say. Just order it online.

    Only way your truck wouldn't work with 15's is if you had an 04 with VSC (which is pretty damn rare) or you did (or plan on doing) the Tundra brake swap.

    okay dont get a 7 inch wide wheel it most likely wont fit the caliper. i tried with 3 different wheels and they didnt. the first set of 8 inch wide i got they fit.

    These fit my 01 4x4.....15 inch old (1993) 4runner rims.

    16 inch is stock size but no caliper issues at all.

    i know i got black steelies from discount tire for 50 bucks each and the oles were bigger and looked hell of alot better than the ones on wheelers.. thats just my opinion i have a pic of mine in my build the only thing youll need with steel rims is a 1/4"spacer to clear the calipers in front

    No problem

    Steelies are cheap in general. I used to have wheelers old steelies, the one's that had a fake beadlock ring around it. Not too keen on their new ones either to be honest, but you can't beat the price. Mine didn't need a spacer to clear the calipers. Threads are already pretty short on the Toyota lugs and you can't run ET lug nuts on steelies.

    I found some on summitracing.com for 44 dollars in this size Wheel, 84 D Series, Steel, Black, 15.0 in. x 8.0 in., 6 x 5.50 in. Bolt Circle, 3.750 in. Backspace. Is that a proper backspace or do i need more or less? Im also looking to get some 15's for my 03 4x4. I can get bfg all terrains for about 160 a pop in 31x10.5. in 265/70/16 they are like 240! I have done some research and they are almost exactly the same in overall diameter. Im just iffy on buying rims when i dont know the right backspace, offset etc.

    i want to go with 15's. if u look into it, most 15'' wheels are lighter and cheaper than 16's as well as the tires. also remember all 16 bfg all terrains are 8ply with 3ply sidewalls due to all the larger vehicles that come stock with them. the 15's are 6ply with 3ply sidewall helping with the ride on a lighter truck. i had wheels and tires picked out in 16's, then asked about 15's, thats when i figured out they were about 50 bucks cheaper per corner, and about 20 pounds lighter per corner to go with 15's. just something to think about.

    Just orders the 5100/AAL lift. 15x8 wheels and 33x12.50 tires...
    I realize this post was a long time ago, but did you ever get those wheels? I am looking at them right now and thinking about buying them, but not sure if they will clear the brake caliper.
