    Hi guys, I have a 2002 4-door prerunner and I just called 4wheelparts to order rims that I had been wanting for quite some time. I just called them and the sales rep told me that the rim won't fit on my truck. This is it

    http://www.4wheelparts.com/prodDetail.aspx?partNo=BRW900B586037

    Anyway, the guy said I won't be able to fit ANY aftermarket 15" rim on my truck because of the calipers. Is this true? I find it funny that no one has mentioned this to me in the past.

    Thanks, in advance, for your alls info!!!!

    Ya I have heard people complain about this before, I have a 96 with 15's but I think when Toyota started making the newer style first gen's they got bigger calipurs.

    you can fit 15s on a first gen double cab...

    there are some wheels though that won't clear the ABS on first gens, so 4WP tends to do a blanket reply that 15s won't fit on a tacoma... it covers them in case there is an issue.. they don't have to take the wheels back cuz they officially disuaded you...

    if you really want the wheels in that size though, you could take a chance and order one to test fit...

    but then the $ of the tires are 80 more per tire. Either way, I would rather have 15's.
