    Is there any clearance or other issues using 1st generation Tacoma 6 lug 15 inch wheels on a 2nd generation Tacoma that was built for 16 inch wheels?

    I could be wrong, but that is going to be a tight fit on the calipers - even if you clearance them. I know it was going to be a huge PITA on my '99 4Runner when I considered running 15" rims.

    What are your reasons for going with a 15" rim? Cheaper tires?

    The reason I am inquiring. I sold all 5 of the Dunlop 245X75-16 OEM tires as they were trash, and replaced with 4 Michelin LTX M/S2 265X70-16. I know, I should have held onto the spare anyway. I have a 98 Tacoma wheel with a perfect Michelin LTX M/S but it is 15 inch. Until I can afford to buy another new / used Michelin 265-16 as a spare, I need a spare and wanted to use what I have.

    Ok - I figured. He's wanting to run 1st gen wheels on a 2nd gen.

    You can run 15" rims on a 2nd gen. I just put on 32x11.50r15 on mine 10 mins ago. I had to get 2" spacers for it to work... BUT! If I want to keep the I have to trim my fenders because I now have to make I 112 point turn to turn around =(. And they stick out like a mo fo

    My problem is solved. My neighbor gave me a near new Michelin LTX M/S 255x70-16 that I can mount to my spare wheel. Thanks for you input everyone. It was better to find out here, than a dark, rainy night with a flat tire.
