    I have a set of 31X10.5X15 BF Goodrich ATs that are almost new and would like to put them on my new Taco. Will 15" wheels clear everything (brakes) and what offset do I need to get. Thanks in advance.

    Are you sure about that? Maybe not all '05+ but some of the 4x2 the 5 bolt ones come with 15" I could have sworn that I was looking at a 2010 4x2 base with 15" wheels at the dealership last week. Now that being said, I don't think that I have seen any 6 bolts with 15" wheels. I'm going to try a set of older toyota 15" six bolts on my '07 later this week, I guy on my way to work is selling them rather cheap, and I want them for my snows. I'll let people know if they fit.

    Yup but what you said still applies to the OP. He has SR5 4x4, thus 16 inch steelies. I heard that the brake calipers prevent you from being able to run 15" wheels

    yep......the brake calipers being in the way prevent them from fitting on the 6 lug tacomas.

    yeah 16" wheels barely clear the front brake calipers so 15s are out of the question

    Well I tried to put a older set of Toyota 15" wheels on my 2007. These older wheels have a lot more offset than the stock wheels. They clear the calipers in the vertical axis, they don't rub in the inside of the wheel. However due to the huge offset they wouldn't clear the caliper in the horizontal axis, in other words they rubbed on the side of caliper where the brake pad would sit. Too bad, as the price was right for them, free.
