    why is it that you cant have 15" rims when you lift your truck, i personally like the look of smaller rims but everything i see says minimum 17"?

    IIRC, the spindles on the 6" lifts rub the smaller wheels

    I thought that 15s won't fit due to them rubbing the caliper. Not because of a lift

    this is true, 15s wont fit a stock truck

    16s wont fit because of the spindle/tie rod relocation.

    some 17s fit ( most XD wheels fit)

    the lift manufacturers call for 18s
