    Will 15 inch wheels fit on my 2006 toyota Tacoma Sport TRD??

    I want to get winter tires and rims but really dont want to get 17's for my stock rims.

    What is the smallest wheel i can run?

    Thanks guys!

    Go with 16" wheels. The tire size will be easier to find and it'll look perfect on your truck. 15" wheels will look weird on the truck.

    ehh, winter time, dont really care what it looks like. just trying to go cheap. its easy to find 15" rims on craigslist.

    I really wish i knew how to post pictures on this becuase i would show you what my truck looks like. Im worried my Fuel - Gauge flat black 18" rims will get destroyed becuase of all the salt on the roads...

    OME 3" lift with 885 coils. OME Shocks with TSB 1.5 AAL. 285/75/16 KM2s. XD Hoss 16" wheels. DDM Tuning 6000K HIDs, H10 6000K Fogs. BHLM. Debaged. 20% tint on front windows.
    15s won't fit, 15s will rub the break caliper. Go with 16s.

    15" rims won't clear the brakes or as some on here spell (correct spelling is for conformists with no imagination) it breaks. Some 16" rims won't clear them either. Les Schwab has black steel "winter rims" for cheap (last time I checked they were $35ish each) they will test fit them for you......

    15s will only fit on the back drums, you need at least 16s and even some 16s rub on the calipers.

    Scored these for stupid cheap. Practically new.

    15" however. I figued they'd fit on one or the other of my trucks ('05 Taco and 98 4runner) since both are sold with 15" base wheels. I've never once herd the TRD packages came with upgraded brakes.
