    I’ve searched high and low and since I didn’t find an answer, I’m assuming it won’t work, but maybe some here can consider this situation:

    Would a 15x6 wheel (older 4 runner steelies) with a 4.75 backspacing fit on my first gen without rubbing calipers or fenders.

    Was considering pairing those up with 33/10.5r15, anyone know if that will work out?

    I know many will probably say “why would you want to?” But that’s not really the point. Mostly wondering hypothetically if this specific combo would work.

    currently sitting on stock suspension, but suspension changes are coming before wheel changes and should bring me up 2.5”

    Thanks for any and all feedback you can offer.

    I'm going with no. Not a chance if 6 lug and 4x4. You could measure center of hub to outside of caliper then see what the inside diameter of the wheel is. With the tire and backspace, probably be rubbing the top of the spindle or upper control arm.
