Is it possible to fit 15" wheels with 75 series tyres (AT or MT) to a vehicle manufactured with 16" wheels that would normally have 70 series tyres to achieve the same overall diameter but have the benefit of Light Truck construction tyres?

I know that in a landcruiser petrol you cannot fit 15 " rims , they touch the caliper . In a diesel it's not a problem I beleive , they run smaller discs, in the 100 series anyway .Craigs hut 2003

You will find that clearing the calipers tends to be a problem as the 16" rims are generally fitted because of these larger brakes. Better braking is great but low sidewalls aren't as good offroad. You win some, you lose some.
